This year’s Buffalo Cherry Blossom is heading to the next level. Thanks to participation by Robby Takac (GooGoo Dolls) and Music is Art, the festival is incorporating a music and art element that is sure to impress visitors. There will also be plenty of other activities at hand, including pink boat rides, and food trucks.
