Happy Birthday Elmira!
ELMIRA (WENY) -- Happy Birthday Elmira! This weekend is Elmira's 150th birthday. And this birthday shindig is going down... in downtown, of course!.
 
The city will look back at where the community has been and where it will be 150 years from now. Events include live music, street vendors, arts and crafts and it wouldn't be a party without some cake. Katies café created replica clock tower cake that took more than 40 hours to make.  And the best way to end any celebration... is with a bang..fireworks went off at 9:30
 
“Its an historical marker. We have reached one hundred and fifty years and most of us aren't capable of being here in one hundred and fifty. But there's just a bunch of historical information along the way and its just a reason for the city to come together and people to come together for a celebration,” says councilmen Brent Stermer.
 
Tomorrow the celebration continues with the annual Jazz Festival in Wisner park from noon to six.
