Buffalo Celebrates Spring & Dyngus Day!

© by Mike Keenan

Spring has arrived in Buffalo Niagara and, along with it, so have buds on the trees, beautiful bulbs and temperatures hovering around 50-perfect light jacket weather for touring the city, visiting the vineyards and grabbing a Beef on Wick to go! For something special, make plans to enjoy the boutiques and artsy vibe of Elmwood Village or the scenic beauty and history of Williamsville. Everything's coming alive, and the best place to be is in Buffalo's great outdoors!

If you are Polish, be sure to enjoy Buffalo's first spring festival - Dyngus Day! the annual post-Lenten bash, attracts tens of thousands to Buffalo, New York to celebrate spring, show Polish pride, flirt with pussy willows and listen to the best polka bands in the nation. Dyngus Day always falls on the Monday after Easter. In 2015, Dyngus Day will take place on Monday, April 6th. Activities in the Buffalo-Niagara region have expanded to one week of events.
