UTICA -- The Mohawk Valley Health System Foundation and F.X. Matt Brewery held their 11th annual Prohibition Party Friday.

The event took place at the Saranac Brewery on Varick St. in Utica.

People came out dressed in 1920s attire and enjoyed music and food.

The theme of the party celebrates the end of prohibition.

The Saranac Brewery was the first local brewery to sell alcohol after the prohibition.

A favorite part of the event for many is dressing up and giving back to the community. 

"We love dressing up, getting in costume," said Cherie Grant. "You can just feel the 1920s vibe going on."

"I like the fact of supporting the foundation first of all," said Shawn Stephenson. "Second of all, I like the fact that we're free to drink now and this is history."

All proceeds raised from the event go towards St. Elizabeth Medical Center.
