Fourth Annual Holiday Live at Larkin

If you think that Larkin Square is all buttoned up for the winter season, think again. Each year, Larkinville keeps the fun alive with special celebrations, including one of the all time favorites – Holiday Live at Larkin. The event revolves a rather unusual holiday music showcase called Robot Holiday. Robot Holiday features a number of respectable local bands that dedicate their time and talents to composing original songs. “Robot Holiday composes original songs about holiday/winter themes, not robots,” says promoter Seamus Gallivan. “The “robot” theme is just a synthesizer trick on a few songs, not incorporated into the live show.” Since the onset, Robot Holiday has become a timeless fan favorite concert tradition that takes place on the covered and heated Larkin Square boardwalk.

“Holiday Live at Larkin is one of our most wonderful events of the year,” said Leslie Zemsky, Larkinville’s Director of Fun. “Between the amazing music, and holiday cheer, it’s become a signature expression of the seasonal spirit in Larkinville. The hot bar will be open over at the Hydraulic Hearth as well!”

Hot-Bar-Larkin-Buffalo-NYIf you haven’t heard about the outdoor Hot Bar at Hydraulic Hearth, then you’re missing out. The bar is open in the fall during regular HH hours, serving mulled wine, hot buttered rum, chai tai, Ancho hot chocolate, and hot cider (N/A). The HH Hot Bar is the perfect way to celebrate fall in Larkinville. If you missed out on this wonderful seasonal offering, then you still have a chance to check it out during Holiday Live at Larkin.
