Holiday happenings in the Buffalo area: Fairgrounds Festival of Lights and Victorian Christmas

A few more upcoming holiday-themed events – whether you like showy lights or a touch of Victorian elegance.

The Fairgrounds Festival of Lights takes place Friday, November 28th through Sunday, December 28th (selected dates) at the Hamburg Fairgrounds (enter from South Park Ave.) – assuming they ever get dug out of all the snow they’re getting! (Of course they will – what’s a few feet of snow in the Southtowns?!) The 10th annual festival will feature light displays, the Snowzilla snow tubing adventure, the Holiday Marketplace and more. Gates will be open from 5 to 9 p.m., but the buildings and grounds are open until 10 p.m. Admission to the Fairgrounds Festival of Lights is $20 per carload, $25 for 15-passenger van or limo, and $50 per bus – pre-sale tickets are available for just $10 per carload at the Fairgrounds Event Center, the Fairgrounds Main Office or participating Tops Friendly Markets.
