Saturday will be full of events in Buffalo to help kick off the Holiday Season, culminating in the annual Chili Feed and Lighted Christmas Parade downtown.

Events will begin that morning and continue through the evening with something to do for everyone.

Make a gingerbread house, take advantage of some great deals at area stores, get your photo taken with Santa, or enjoy one or many treats offered throughout town.

The Downtown Shopping Showcase will be at Deerfield's all day with ideas for gifts for everyone on your list and local author Steve Rzasa will be signing copies of his new book, Crosswind, and his three other novels.

3-2-1 sales are happening at area stores where at 6am you get 30% off your purchase, at 7am you get 20% off and at 8am you get 10% off, so come early to shop and save.

Angela Jarvis, with the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce, tells us more about the day's biggest events.

This year's parade will feature 8 categories and four different types of floats that can enter and this year's theme is “Christmas Wishes.”
