This Saturday, the Christmas season will officially begin in Buffalo with many events all day, capped by the annual chili feed and the Lighted Christmas Parade. Aaron Palmer brings us the details.
The chili feed, according to Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Director Angela Jarvis, has become a well-loved tradition in Buffalo.
The chili feed will take place in Crazy Woman Square downtown beginning at 4 pm. The chili, coffee and hot chocolate are all free to the public, donated by area businesses for thousands to enjoy. Jarvis describes the chili feed.
And of course, the chili feed leads into the main event: the annual Lighted Christmas Parade begins right after the chili feed ends at 6 pm, and traditionally features over 30 lighted floats decorated in the theme of the year.
This year's theme is “Christmas Around the World,” and awards will be given for the best interpretation, best lights, and many other categories.
Immediately after the parade, the Buffalo Senior Center invites everyone for cinnamon rolls, hot chocolate and coffee.
