Though the crowd was small at the beginning of the event, it gradually grew as the evening went on.

Last week, with just days remaining before the New York Primary on April 19, Bernie Sanders supporters took the stage for their favorite Democratic candidate. In an event that grew as the hours went on, both local and national up-and-coming acts played in a “Fuel the Bern” concert at Palace Theater organized by Syracuse for Sanders.

At a recent press conference, four leaders spoke to press about why they are supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders.

A grassroots campaign does not take place in a grand ballroom. It typically doesn’t sell out arenas or stadiums. Usually you will be hard-pressed to find donors that can give more than twenty dollars of their paycheck. But that seems to be why Sen. Bernie Sanders and his message attract so many supporters. The Vermont senator is resonating with so many people in his bid to win the nomination of the Democratic Party.

The march comes just a few days before Sanders is set to visit Syracuse's Oncenter.

Democratic candidate for president Bernie Sanders is coming off a win in Wisconsin, and his New York supporters want to keep the momentum going.

Sanders supporters marched through Downtown Syracuse today in hopes of encouraging voters to vote for Sanders in the upcoming New York Primary on April 19, 2016.

To gain more attention, people beat drums to make sure they were heard and waved signs with messages such as “We are the 99%” and “Feel the Bern.”
