North Buffalo is where I grew up and where my 88 year old Dad still lives. They started this amazing Christmas walk about 6 years ago and brings out tons of people. Plus, most serve free wine and some sort of snack - like crackers and cheese. The other thing I like is I insure 4 restaurants on Hertel, so I get to stop in and patronize them on this night.
If you live in or near Buffalo, you should check out the Hertel Holiday Walk this Friday night!
