Festival Season Has Begun

Buffalo, in my opinion, has one of the best summers around. Not because of the weather, but because of the festivals. Pretty much every weekend, all summer long, there is at least one fair, ethnic festival or street festival. Some of the largest include The Taste of Buffalo and The Italian Festival (which is one of the five largest street festivals in the country). Festival season runs from June through September.

Plus on Tuesdays you can to Artpark for free concerts and on Thursdays catch a free concert in Layfayette Square. Featured bands at "Thursday at the Square" this year include SmashMouth, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Blues Traveler (to mention a few).

This weekend it was the Music is Art Festival and the Allentown Art Festival . We went to Allentown for the first time in years. Its gotten a lot better. Actually the last time we went, my engagement ring was purchased. Check out our pictures here . One of my favorite local artists was there, Michael S Smith . He does these terrific pen and ink drawings of local schools, buildings, etc. Our staircase is lined with them. I finally got my Sacred Heart Academy one. Yay!!!!!!!! Plus we managed to get a birthday and a Christmas gift purchased while we were there. Yes I did say Christmas.

I highly recommend the Carbon Leaf/Blues Traveler show. CL tends to hang out by their merch table after shows to chat & sign stuff.
