We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but we’re half way through summer around here, so if you’ve been slacking, it’s time to kick it up a notch. This month is filled with street festivals like the Eden Corn Festival, fairs, cultural get togethers (here’s your chance to get to Spring Garden Park), smaller events that will have you feeling warm and fuzzy for multiple reasons (Hellooooo Infringement Festival), and some WNY classics (check out the Northwest Jazz Festival…. AKA the Lewiston Jazz Festival) that you know and love. Enjoy, Buffalo!
