This weekend might be the busiest weekend in the Southern Tier all year long. Spiedie Fest is taking place at Otsiningo Park, NASCAR returns to the Glen this weekend, The Binghamton Rumble Ponies are playing all weekend long at NYSEG Stadium, the Jerry Garcia tribute band The Garcia Project is up at Touch of Texas Friday night, and it's also First Friday in downtown Binghamton. A lot of these events are outdoor events and it looks like the weather will clear up on Saturday, and Sunday looks beautiful. Speaking of weather, due to rain The K. C. And the Sunshine Band concert for tonight (Friday) has been relocated from Otsiningo Park to the Floyd L. Maines Memorial Arena.

Next time you hear somebody say "there's nothing to do in Binghamton", remind them of everything that went on this weekend. Here are more details on all of those events;
