The Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum in Buffalo hosted their annual Living History Day Saturday, showcasing many different living exhibits including flintnapping, a blacksmith, a tomahawk thrower, and numerous people dressed in period costumes from the 1800s teaching guests about history.

There was also free admission to the museum itself where numerous new exhibits are now on display.

Museum Director John Gavin said he thought fewer people turned out this year, but those that did come had a great time.

Basque dancers, square dancers and musicians playing old-time music kept those attending entertained and the local Basque Club sold Lukainka sausage throughout the day, raising money for their upcoming NABO (North American Basque Organization) Festival in Buffalo in July.

More than 5,000 people of Basque heritage from all over North America are expected during the festival.

The Living History Day happens every June at the Jim Gatchell Museum in Buffalo.
