Utica, N.Y. - World Refugee Day was on Thursday but Utica celebrated it on Saturday in grand style.

Quite a crowd turned out outside Utica City Hall to take part in all of the festivities, which included a walk, as well as a Naturalization Ceremony.

Shwe Win of Utica came to the U.S. from Burma in 2000 and on Saturday became a U.S. citizen. She says it's bee a long road to get to this point, but it's all been well worth it, "I came with a student visa and everything step-by-step come along way, a lot going on since then and now today it’s going to be a big day."

Win was one of about a dozen people to become U.S. citizens on Saturday at the Naturalization Ceremony outside Utica City Hall.
