Festival Fest: March 7 & 8

I got a few events and I've got a lot of meat raffles so let's get into it.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Hello, everyone. This is Festival Fest -- the thing I do where I talk about things to do in Western New York. 

And you know, you can say a lot of things about Festival Fest --except that it's boring -- until now.

Today we are talking about events happening on and around March 7 and 8 and you may notice that the calendar puts Saturday and Sunday right next to each other for some reason on the calendar which has led to some confusion in the past. 

Yeah, so. I got a few events and I've got a lot of meat raffles so let's get into it.

Bids Barks and Beers is happening at the Golf Dome on Tonawanda 

It's Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and if dogs and beer aren't enough to get your attention, you can also win a trip to Florida.

Our lady of victory is having its 25th annual sweepstakes. Their are over 40 changes to win $25,000 in crash.... crash prizes.. look out! Cash. Prizes. And there is a $10,000 grand prize.

We have a couple of events for toy and train enthusiasts. 

The Niagara Falls Comic Book Toy and Train Show. It says here they've got super heroes, zombies, ghostbusters and ghost hunters. Boo!  

And I also got an email from Chuck about a Toy Train Show that's happening in Sanborn.

And remember what I said about the meat raffles? OH! I think I have the meat sweats. Here come the meat raffles.

I've got a breakfast burrito in the microwave.

Someone commented that I should spend more time on the events and I could not agree more.

And that's Festival Fest. It's pretty alright.
