Friday Favorites!

This week is a pretty sad, but happy one as I say goodbye to two great friends. While I’m sad that they are leaving, I’m happy for the opportunities that came their way and am wishing them nothing, but great things in their future. While Buffalo is losing two amazing people, NY and DC are gaining two amazing people. Have a wonderful weekend.

During the summer months M&T Bank hosts concerts in the plaza during the lunch hour. Its nice taking a walk on your lunch break to hear the music in the streets of Main St. downtown.

I don’t make my way to Lewiston that often, but this past week my friend Lauren and I caught the Sara Bareilles concert for their Coors Light Wednesday concert series. You can’t go wrong, for general admission, tickets were $11 and you we got to see a pretty talented artist. Artpark is such a pretty place, for those who love nature, music and being outdoors I suggest taking the pretty drive up to Niagara county and spending a day exploring and seeing what its all about.

Fun festivals and fetes in town

This past week has been full of fun festivals and lawn fetes in Western New York; Canal Fest, Italian Fest, Queen of Heaven Lawn Fete and my favorite one, the Polish Festival. What are some of your favorite things to do at a festival or lawn fete? Some of my favorite things to do are: hit up the beer tent {duh! that’s a given}, walk around and see what activities are going on; for example at the Polish Fest I love watching the people who polka on the stage, at the Italian Fest I love the bocce tournaments that take place and at lawn fetes I love hearing the live bands play. There is still more summer left and more festivals and fetes to attend! What are some of the ones you are looking forward to attending?

Garden Walk: July 26 & 27

Eden Corn Fest: July 31, August 1, 2, 3

This week started off not on the greatest of notes, but it ended with me feeling very thankful and grateful for the opportunities and experiences I’ve had. Enjoy the weekend!
