BUFFALO, NY - Thousands and thousands of people made their way to Buffalo's waterfront over the long holiday weekend. So many that it even surprised the man responsible for development along the inner harbor. But despite the success, there's still a lot of work left to be done!
Kendra Goga is from Detroit and wishes she had some waterfront development back home. She has visited Buffalo for years and notices the difference by the water this year.
"We really like it down here," Goga said.
And judging by the crowds lately, so do many others. Tom Dee, the president of the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation, says about 40,000 people have visited the waterfront in the past ten days; coming for concerts, fireworks or just enjoying the weather.
"Friday Saturday, Sunday and Monday I would say we had at least three thousand people each day," said Dee.
