Buffalo's longest running ethnic festival wraps up on Sunday after it's weekend long run.

The Agustin “Pucho” Olivencia Community Center's 47th Annual Grease Pole Festival celebrated three days of music, ethnic food, and dancing. The festival is centered around community and culture, with family friendly activities.

The main event features a greased telephone pole where teams that are pitted against each other, attempt to climb up the pole without sliding down.

The festival takes place at the Olivencia Community Center on Swan Street in Buffalo.
