2018 Parade of Circles

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.
