Buffalo, NY- The Taste of Buffalo celebrated its 30th birthday this year.

Of course it was all about the food with dozens of vendors from around the area flaunting their items and hoping to satisfy visitors' taste buds.

For some, it was their first time experiencing the food-fest, but for others coming to the annual event is tradition.

This year the taste of Buffalo offered healthy food options including gluten free items and vegan items.

But there were your crowd favorites as well, including the Riverstone Grill who sold more than 2000 pieces of bacon this year.

Some winners from today's event included sea food jambalaya, banana pepper stuffed chicken and chocolate covered strawberries.

The Taste of Buffalo will wrap up on Sunday.
