Mark your calendar for what could be the biggest parade in Broome County History.

The Bicentennial Parade is June 3.

County Executive Barbara Fiala and organizers announced the line-up. More than 200 groups are signed up including bands, bagpipers, floats, fire trucks, even a dance group from Bolivia.

They'll parade down Court Street in Binghamton.

The courthouse lawn will be filled with free activities like face-painting and goat-milking.

"When you have children, they want everything they see so it's nice to give them things that they can have and the parents can relax and say, ‘go do that, pet the animals, pet the goat, get a balloon,’" said Sylvia Kerber of the parade committee.

The Broome County Bicentennial parade is Saturday, June 3.

It begins 11:00 a.m. at the corner of Oak and Main and will travel down Court Street in Binghamton.

Activities on the Courthouse lawn run from 11 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
