Over one hundred Bernie Sanders supporters marched through downtown Syracuse Saturday. They rallied together with music and several chants in support of the Democratic presidential candidate.

Many of the marchers were young college students, a demographic Sanders has gathered large support from. But there were also plenty who are middle-aged locals, like Beth Totten.

“I believe he’s going to bring jobs back, he’s going to do a universal health care system; he’s really the guy we need leading us. He is very truthful, I mean even the pope loves him, right?” said Totten.

Today is the day the Salvation Army gets to play Santa Claus. The annual Christmas Bureau gets help from local organizations and volunteers to provide gifts and food for Onondaga County families who can’t afford it themselves.

A new era will soon begin in the life of the OnCenter in downtown Syracuse. A national management group will take over the operation of the convention center and some other downtown venues.

SMG, a private firm out of Philadelphia, will be responsible for booking events at the OnCenter, the War Memorial, the Civic Center, Alliance Bank Stadium, and the Everson Museum.
