Living in Western New York, there are an endless stream of local events celebrating each season, and let's face it, there's a nod to summer just about every day during our short months of hot weather. This year my companies; Frank's Basement Systems, Mr. Plumber, and Frank's Dr. Energy Saver, are geared up to participate in several of our outdoor traditions.
We started with Ride for Roswell and continue the celebration at the Canal Fest. For those of you not from our area, canal Fest is a week-long celebration, attracting over 200,000 people to participate in all the events. The Canal Fest runs along the Erie Barge Canal and the mighty Niagara River, where North Tonawanda and the City of Tonawanda meet.
With temperatures in the high 80's, low 90's, we set up a "Rest Stop" for people to cool off by our fans and mist themselves off by our sprinklers. Stop by any of the great vendors surrounding us and grab a bite, bring it over by us and eat at one of our tables...refreshed and full, you'll be ready to take the kids on all the rides, shop at all the tents or maybe even participate in some of the fun water events happening all week.
Tuesday's event highlight is the CANAL FEST PARADE!!
