Inaugural car show @ The Buffalo History Museum

If you stop to think about it, the parking lot of the Buffalo History Museum is the perfect spot to host a car show. It’s in a great location geographically speaking, with an incredible architectural backdrop, and close proximity to Mirror Lake and walking trails… plus the parking lot facing Elmwood is often underutilized, sitting empty for the most part unless the segway tour company is using it for their training exercises. It would be great to see a small café built right at the corner of the lot along Elmwood, or a café in the stone administration building situated on the south-east corner of the lot, but that’s wishful thinking for another day.

In the meantime, the museum is hosting its 1st Annual Antique & Classic Car Show – an even that is befitting to the organization if ever there was one.

The rain or shine festivities will showcase prized autos; food by Greek to Me and Just Pizza; celebrity hosts for award presentations; free mini-museum tours; and Rock n Roll DJ music.
