Hello my friends! It wouldn't be summer in Buffalo, if I didn't dedicate an entry to the annual Taste of Buffalo food festival. This year, the annual festival celebrated 30 years of success. An excerpt from the events website states the following:
"The Taste of Buffalo presented by TOPS is the largest two-day food festival in the United States. It began in 1984 and now attracts almost 450,000 patrons annually. It has been voted WNY's premier outdoor festival. The Taste is a not-for-profit corporation registered with the State of New York and is run by an all-volunteer board of directors and a festival coordinator. The primary purpose of the event is to showcase downtown Buffalo and the wonderful restaurants that call our region home."
Not only was the food, sangria slushies and desserts great, but as you can see from the video, so was the ambiance. And even though I was sweating like a crazy people, I wouldn't have missed this event. For more information please visit www.tasteofbuffalo.com and we hope to see you next year!!!
