SO YOU WONT BE MISSING ANY FOOTBALL ACTION IF YOU ATTEND THE DINNER.

OUR NEXT EVENT TAKES US TO LARKIN SQAURE. INSTEAD OF TRICK OR TREATING HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF TRUCK OR TREAT. HOME OF THE FAMOUS FOOD TRUCK TUESDAYS, THIS FRIDAY FROM FIVE TO EIGHT PM FOOD TRUCKS WILL BE GETTING INTO THE HALLOWEEN SPIRIT.  BRING THE KIDS IN THEIR COSTUMES, CANDY WILL BE GIVEN AWAY. AND I HEAR THERE MAY EVEN BE A PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST. WALK AROUND TO THE TUNES OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD TRIBUTE BAND AND BRING AN EMPTY STOMACH. GET READY TO FIEST ALL NIGHT LONG.

SOMETIMES WITH OUR BUSY SCHEDULES, IT’S DIFFICULT TO STOP AND ENJOY THE NATURAL BEAUTIES WESTERN NEW YORK HAS TO OFFER. WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU TOOK A WALK AROUND NIAGARA FALLS? ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST STATE PARK’S IS IN OUR BACKYARD. IF YOU HAVENT SEEN THE FALLS AT NIGHT, IT IS ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING. BRING YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY OR A SIGNIFIGANT OTHER AND GO EXPLORE NIAGARA FALLS STATE PARK. FROM NOW UNTIL THE END OF DECEMBER THE FALLS WILL BE LIT UP STARTING AT SEVEN PM TO MIDNIGHT.

IF YOURE LOOKING FOR SOME MORE EXCITEMENT, EVERY MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND SUNDAY EVENINGS FROM NOW UNTIL HALLOWEEN WATCH THE SPECTACULAR FIRE WORK PERFORMANCE SHOOT OFF ABOVE THE FALLS. THIS ALL STARTS AT 10PM SHARP, SO GRAB A BLANKET AND GO WATCH THE SHOW.

JUST TEN MINUTES AWAY FROM THE FALLS, YOU WILL FIND OUR LADY OF FATIMA SHRINE IN LEWISTON. BEGINNING THE FRIDAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING DONT MISS THEIR FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS. THE SHRINE WILL BE LIT UP EVERY NIGHT FROM FIVE TO NINE PM. GROWING UP IN LEWISTON DRIVING BY THE SHRINE AT NIGHT, IT REALLY IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT. WITH MORE THAN SEVENTY FIVE DISPLAYS, THERE’S SO MUCH TO LOOK AT AND SEE. IT’LL BE SURE TO PUT YOU IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT.

WITH THE LEAVES CHANGING AND HALLOWEEN A LITTLE OVER A WEEK AWAY. OUR MIKE RANDALL TOOK A TRIP TO THE W & J AWALD FARMS IN NORTH COLLINS. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO BRING THE FAMILY ON A FALL DAY.

LAST WEEK I MADE SOME SPOOKY FRIENDS AT THE HOUSE OF HORRORS AND HAUNTED CATACOMBS. I WAS ABLE TO CATCH UP WITH MICHAEL MYERS AND YOU CAN TOO. WE ARE GIVING AWAY FOUR TICKETS TO THE HAUNTED HOUSE. I’M NOT GOING TO LIE THIS PLACE IS PRETTY SCARY. THEY HAD ME WALKING THROUGH THE HAUNTED HOUSES. LETS JUST SAY I JUMPED MORE THAN ONCE.
