Every year millions of people travel from around the world to visit the iconic Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington. This weekend, a lot of those people happened to be from Western New York.
 
"I was out in Baltimore earlier this year, Bills fans travel best in the NFL,no question about it," Bill Stefanich said. "So, we will be packing the city out and we're gonna have a good time this weekend." 
 
Stefanich was visiting with his family, who say they don't travel to games often -- but this was one they didn't want to miss. 
 
"We love the bills, we are diehard Bills fans, we have been Bills fans all of our lives," Ray Stefanich said. "The whole family is here and we are here to have a good time, go Bills!" 
 
You've probably seen the fish market before in TV shows or movies -- and over the years what started as just a place to buy fish became one of Seattle's most popular attractions. 
 
But how exactly did the fish throwing get started? 
 
"There's a million people out here right? So instead of going up here and saying excuse me, excuse me, pardon me, walking through the crowd with a big 20 pound halibut we basically just throw it instead," Ryan Rector from Pike Place Fish Market said. "So it just goes right over everybody and it saves us about 50 steps each time." 
 
The market offers fish of all shapes and sizes -- selling some of the freshest Salmon, halibut and Cod in the country. And yes, if you're interested in ordering from Buffalo, the market will ship anywhere in the country!
