Where did the time go!?

We're already heading into the second full week of September. And if you need to get your mind off of your first week at school, you're in luck. 

There are plenty of fun events to attend across Western New York this weekend. 


American Idol Tour Bus

Do you think you have what it takes to be the next American Idol? You won't have to travel far to get a golden ticket to Hollywood. 

The American Idol Tour Bus makes a stop at Canalside Sunday. The 7 Eyewitness Idol Crew will be on deck to witness history. Stop on by, say hi and don't be afraid to show off your pipes. Auditions start at 7 a.m. and go until 5 p.m. 

You can watch our one hour special live right here on WKBW starting at 8 a.m. 


Game Day Bar Crawl

Ready or not, Buffalo Bills football season is upon us! Yes, the Bills are playing out of town Sunday. But that doesn't mean you can't have some fun on Hertel. More than 17 bar and restaurants will take part in the second annual Game Day Bar Crawl. For a list of restaurants taking part in the bar crawl, click here.


Harvest Festival

Get an early start on fall at this festival at Darien Lake. This Harvest Festival features a beer garden, food trucks, rides and entertainment. The Harvest Festival takes place Saturday and Sunday. If you can't make it this weekend, you'll have another opportunity to make a trip down Route 77 next weekend.
