BUFFALO, N.Y.- More than one million visitors came down to Canalside this summer to check out the festivals, concerts and other events going one by the harbor, the Erie County Harbor Development Corporation announced Wednesday.
The ECHDC says they offered 30 percent more actives and events than they did last year, with new offerings including World Cup viewing, WNY bike rentals and the F BITES cooking program for children. Previous activities like Zumba and the Saturday Artisan Market were also available throughout the summer.
"Food, fun, music, games, exercise, relaxation and history all played a role in Canalside's growing success this summer," ECHDC Chairman Robert Gioia said. "I applaud the Canalside staff for making the site and the daily activities so enjoyable for visitors and residents."
