Last Friday morning, I approached downtown Binghamton, New York, and, to my delight, found potted flowering plants lined up around a temporary stage.
July Fest - a street festival and downtown Binghamton's opportunity to shine.
Magic Paintbrush Project, which provides art opportunities for disabled children and adults )
|Perry Building, 89 Court St., Binghamton, NY|
Here, jazz singer Glenda Davenport performs in the Binghamton Music and Jazz Festival which brought July Fest back "from the brink" several years ago. Now, it is an integral part of the festival.
This is a short video taken towards the end of her set. Enjoy!
We are only at the beginning of various public performances of jazz and other music in Binghamton, and all of these are free: (I'm not even listing weekly performances in various parks throughout the area) - although I say "free" a lot of volunteer work goes into these, and some accept donations or have fundraisers.
Rec Park Music Fest
Chris Thater Music Festival (part of a fantastic bicycle racing event - a MUST VIEW)
Blues on the Bridge
Do you have a lot of music events where you live?
