Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Ultimate Fairgoer Contest

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Ultimate Fairgoer Contest

As my countdown to the 176th Erie County Fair continues on, this year brings special Fair memories for me.  This year marks the 10th anniversary of me being selected as the Ultimate Fairgoer.  The folks over at the Fairgrounds began the search for the person who loves the Fair, who breathes the Fair, and who simply put, cannot get enough of the Fair way back in 2005!  And that is where my story begins!

Yes, the search for the person for the new contest at the Fair begins.  The ad says that they are looking for someone that you think is deserving of the new title of “Ultimate Fairgoer”.  It has to be someone that really loves the Fair.  They were looking for that one “outstanding” Fairgoer.  And along with the prestigious title of “Ultimate”, they were also awarding a ton of pretty nice prizes.

WNY VegFest 2015 – A Sustainable Awakening

WNY VegFest 2015 – A Sustainable Awakening

 

When people think of Buffalo, NY, they often think of a tumultuous amount of snow, chicken wings, and the losing streak of the Buffalo Bills. What many don’t know is that the city is rich with different cultures and an immense diversity of amazing food! Each summer promises various food festivals as an opportunity to venture out and experience something new, and in 2014 one group decided to take this a step further.

 

WNY VegFest merges Vegetarian and Vegan with a clean, sustainable, and healthy lifestyle. The event brought over 5,000 people to Delaware Park last year and expects an even larger turnout this year.

 

StreetPoetz.Com founder, Cece Carson, had a moment to speak with Albert Brown, one of the co-founders of WNY Vegfest and he provided insight into the birth of this astounding event.

Summer activities at Cazenovia Park


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- To bring the community together, more activities are being offered this summer at Cazenovia Park in South Buffalo, including free yoga classes on Sundays.

This is the second season the South Buffalo Farmer's Market has been going on at the park and kids camps are being offered too.

Buffalo Common Council Member Chris Scanlon says the activities also help keep the area safe.

Buffalo Common Council Member Chris Scanlon said, "I think it helps bolster that sense of community and it might give people from the outside - that may look to bring some type of dangerous elements to he park - maybe make them think twice about coming into that area."

Kid's Day will also be back again this year on August 2nd.
