BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- Live music filled the South Washington Street Bridge in Binghamton Saturday afternoon for the 20th anniversary of Blues on the Bridge.

The free community event highlighted 18 bands that performed from Noon to 10 p.m.

Organizer and Promoter, Tom Martinos said with the current state of inflation, this event gave community members the chance to enjoy a fun time for free.

“This is the perfect spot to put an event. It’s bringing people together to have a fun and safe day. That’s the main goal and of course great entertainment with good music,” said Martinos.

There was also several vendors on hand offering a wide variety of foods such as hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken dinners, ice cream, cotton candy, fudge, as well as arts and crafts to name a few.

Bands featured included: String of Pearls, Homebrew, Caviar and Grits, Erin Mulroony and The Backwoods Blues Project, The Parlor Cats, Pasty White and Double Wide, Stratcat Willy and The Strays, Rooster and The Roadhouse Horns, Planet Smith, Wreckless Marci, The Rods, Beard of Bees and The Hive and Joe Stento, Tim Ruffo and Jeff Stachyra of Dirt Farm.

This event was presented by the City of Binghamton, Tom Martinos and Don Wilkins.
