On Sunday, January 23, the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society will be hosting its first annual Winter Carnival.
The carnival will include both outdoor and indoor activities for individuals of all ages. Outdoor activities will include snowshoeing with instructors from the Tifft Nature Preserve, demonstrations of an Iroquois snowsnake game, sledding and snowman-building. There will also be plenty of fun activities going on indoors, including arts and crafts, live reggae, soul and funk music from local band “Vitamin D,” mini museum tours, Rail Barons’ Model Train exhibit, face painting and artifact scavenger hunts.
There will also be free hot chocolate for all visitors to the carnival and baked goods from Chrusciki Bakery will be available. The Buffalo Sabres’ mascot, Sabretooth, will be at the event to pose for pictures with his fans.
Admission to the carnival will be $5 for members of the Historical Society and $10 for non-members. Adults with a paying child will receive free admission. The event will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Historical Society, located at 25 Nottingham Court at the corner of Elmwood Avenue. It is being sponsored by the Northwest Buffalo Community Center.
