The 19th annual Garden Tour in South Buffalo started Sunday at 9 a.m. The free self-guided tour allows people to walk, ride bikes, or drive through South Buffalo to admire the neighborhood.

Volunteers will distribute maps until 1 p.m. at Tim Russert's Children's Garden, located at 2002 South Park Avenue. However, the tour officially ended at 2 p.m.

The tour was hosted by an organization called South Buffalo Alive. The nonprofit strives to improve the quality of life in South Buffalo through preservation and beautification efforts.

While the event was free, there was a suggested donation of $2 or more.

All proceeds will benefit South Buffalo Alive's annual Christmas in the Park event.
