For the second year in a row, The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy brings the best of winter and Buffalo together in one place for one day. This Flurrious celebration will kick off at 9 a.m. and last all day until 10 p.m. on Saturday in Delaware Park. The admission to the winter celebration this weekend is free—what more could you ask for?
Activities this year include snow tennis, family skating (weather permitting/bring your own skates), face painting, igloo building, winter science workshop for kids, cookie decorating, blacksmithing, sleigh rides, cross country skiing, sled pull, snow golf and much more. Spectator events include a Quidditch tournament, hockey exhibition (weather permitting), and kickball & softball tournaments.
The event will feature food and beverages from Magnolia Catering, Coles Restaurant, and Rolling Joe Café. Parking for the event can be found in the Buffalo Zoo parking lot on Jewett Parkway off Parkside Avenue, the surrounding neighborhood, and around the ring road after 10:30 a.m.
