Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Downtown Binghamton got a little more colorful Saturday night.

Rainbow flags lined Court Street for the 9th annual Pride Palooza.

The event celebrates the LGBTQ community.

Street vendors, live music and food attracted hundreds.

One vendor was painting nails to show her support and pride for her community's diversity.

"I just thought that, it needed to be put out there more," Briana Walker said. "And people need to be proud of it."

Half of the proceeds Briana made from the rainbow nails went toward the Pride Coalition of Broome County.
