Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) St. Cyril's in Binghamton celebrated their church's culture with their 18th annual festival.

A little less than 2,000 people weaved through the tents checking out some of the crafts and food.

"This is where everybody gets together," said Joe Mehal, a member of St. Cyril's. "They come here and enjoy the food and have a great time. It's really a fellowship."

Some of the food available on Sunday was their famous chicken BBQ dinner, halupki and pirohi.

The church's parishioners made around 12,000 halupki for the festival this year.

The church also had a $3,000 raffle, live music and games for the kids.

Festival organizers said they have been preparing for the event for the past few months.
