Human Buffalove #4 at Canalside

The 4th annual Human Buffalove event is happening at Canalside on Sunday June 25th from 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Registration is $25 and includes a Buffalove T-shirt, Chiavetta’s BBQ, music from The Boys of Summer and participating in the photo of the event.

Hundreds of people will join together at this lunchtime community event… in the formation of a Buffalo!

This is the event that draws hundreds of Buffalovers together, who congregate in the shape of a buffalo. People love this event for a number of reasons, but mainly because they get to be part of a gigantic buffalo-themed formation. There’s a lot more to look forward to on that day, including:

  • Live music by The Boys of Summer and a fun-filled afternoon
  • Come stand with friends, family, and neighbors as we unite
  • Celebrate BuffaLove as we honor our local veterans
  • Aerial photo will be taken

Founder of the event, Patty Watson, said that they hope to attract 1000 people to the gathering, but that if 2000 people come, the design of the buffalo will be much more detailed. Donations from the proceeds of the event will go to the national Stand4Heroes and Bob Woodruff foundations, and the local WNYHeroes organization.

Patty was inspired to create this event to raise money for charity after the 9-11 attacks and believes that by coming together as a community and showing our Buffalo pride, we can help each other and our veterans. The living Buffalo image, with people standing in formation, is meant to broadcast “Buffalo positivity”.
