Elmwood Village Farmers Market

Mum Exhibit

This is your last chance to check out the mum exhibit at the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens. This year's Mum Exhibit is looking 'spooktacular.' The exhibit showcases a mad scientist lab, a spooky cemetery and mummies. The Buffalo & Erie County "Bootanical" Gardens is open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. throughout the week. The exhibit runs through November 3 and costs $12.50 for adults, $11 for students and $7 for children ages 3 to 12.

Some of the biggest stars in WWE will be in Buffalo Friday. Of course we're talking WWE Friday Night Smackdown. The big show starts at 7:45 p.m. at the KeyBank Center. Tickets range from $15 to $115.

Cellino V. Barnes

It was the talk of the town. Now, you have the chance to see the Cellino and Barnes feud unfold before your eyes in Buffalo. Okay, not really.
