Elmira Weekend Jazz Festival

August 18, 2014

ELMIRA (WENY) Downtown Elmira took a step back into the 1920s this weekend.
    The 9th Annual Twin Tiers Michelob Jazz Festival on Saturday brought hundreds to Wisner Park. People got to enjoy a talented line up of jazz bands, food and community. The sounds of the saxophones, trumpets and trombones could be heard all day throughout downtown's streets.
    And it wasn't just residents from the Twin Tiers enjoying the tunes. People from across New York State were in attendance. 
     Jennifer Herrick from Elmira Downtown Development said, "we also had a bus come down from Buffalo. So that's a big deal. They came last night and they'll stay tonight and leave tomorrow."
     "Everybody loves this festival. This festival, as far as I'm concerned, isn't going anywhere. This is a community favorite. And people just wait for it," she added.
