Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A local church brings music and good food to Endicott for its annual summer bazaar.

St. Joseph's Church celebrated its second day of a weekend-long festival.

Live music, games and food filled the tents and brought in hundreds of people.

The event has been running for nearly four decades.

Locals say the festival is a sign that summer has begun and is a chance for everyone to come out and socialize.

"It's a community event and that's what Father Charles really tries to stress," event chairwoman Terri Smith said. "I mean, look around. There's everybody from every walk of life here. The kids come out. When they see the big tent go up, it's time for some summer fun and it's the bazaar time."

Organizers say one of the main draws is the homemade potato pancakes.

Sunday will continue with Moravian and polka dancing.
