Perhaps the most important annual sporting event which takes place in New York is the Annual New York City Marathon, which happens in early November, considered to be the largest marathon in USA, as well as the most prestigious one in the world, besides the Olympic Games.
The course of the marathon takes the runners through all 5 boroughs in New York City, ending in Central Park, attracting more people every year, continuously growing in both size and popularity.
The favorite annual festival in Vestal is the Annual Vestal Festival, celebrated in June, featuring lots of entertaining activities for all family members, tons of fun, and plenty of delicious festival treats.
Among the festival's highlights there is the Trivia Contest, the Parade, The String Band and the fun Bed and Bathtub Races.
There aren't many `hot` nightspots in Vestal, but you can always get behind the wheel and drive to the `Big Apple`, where you will certainly find all the nightly excitement you're looking for. If you decide to do so, be sure to start the trip early, because Vestal is 3 hours and 30 minutes away from New York City.
However there are a few worth-wile nightspots in Binghamton, which is only 15 minutes from Vestal, by car, such as Belmar Pub, Mc Girk's Irish Pub, Thirsty's Tavern Inc, Empire Club and Xhibition Ltd.
