Italian Heritage Festival takes over Hertel Ave

Posted at 1:57 PM, Jul 17, 2016

Hertel Avenue was transformed into a mini Italy this weekend.

With entertainment and street vendors Buffalo's annual Italian Heritage Festival was once again a hit.

Entertainment throughout the weekend included the Buffalo Jazz and Swing band on Thursday, the Formula Band on Friday, Italians Got Talent on Saturday and a local celebrity cheese-building contest on Sunday, which benefited the winner's charity of choice.

Hertel Avenue between Delaware Ave. and Colvin Blvd. was closed for the festival.
