South Buffalo Alive is once again preparing for the annual Parade of Circles event, which is a great community fortifying, feel good event held in South Buffalo. Each year, South Buffalo residents and supporters line the streets, to watch a parade procession of musicians, dancers, and community organizations, as they proudly walk along McKinley Parkway, from Dorrance Circle to Heacock Park – a route that features a number of triumphant neighborhood beautification projects.
South Buffalo Alive has been instrumental when it comes to South Buffalo beautification projects that include:
- Restoration and beautification of the McKinley and McClellan Circles
- Restoration of the Cazenovia Shelter House, including the “Bricks in the Bowl” garden
- Creation and maintenance of Tim Russert’s Children’s Garden on South Park Avenue
- Installation of flower planters along commercial business strips
According to South Buffalo Alive, “The parade honoree will be the late Tom Moran, chief of Buffalo’s A District Police Station, who passed away this winter. Chief Moran’s daughters, Ava and Lila, will serve as co-grand marshals of the parade.”
The parade is followed by a picnic in the park, with plenty of activities for the kids. Parade day also marks the opening of the South Buffalo Farmers’ Market.
