Binghamton Italian Festival

July 22, 2010 Updated Oct 12, 2009 at 6:10 PM EDT

The annual Italian Festival lined Water Street in downtown Binghamton...

It's an annual tradition after the parade.

St Mary's Church and The Sons of Italy prepare the spread.

Two of the more popular dishes were the Pasta Fusilli and Italian Wedding soup.

Organizers say the festival is another great way to bring the community together.

"And have people have something to do downtown. And we try to bring people down with all of the events that we do plan. And this is one more way we try to bring people to Binghamton," says organizer Mary Ellen Mauro.

Organizers are already brainstorming ideas to expand the festival next year.

Mirabito Energy Products sponsored this year's event.
