The date for the second annual Powderkeg festival has been announced.  Saturday February 12th and Sunday February 13th.  From the website it looks bigger than last year and last year was huge, with a sledding hill off the 190, an ice maze, and concert stage. 

This year it will be at Coca Cola Field and Seneca St, and will consist of many of the same events.  Snowman building contest, broomball, bubble hockey; along with new events like snow tennis, kan jam, and a scavenger hunt for the little kids.  There is also the mandatory beer tent that is at every major Buffalo event. 

Last year I enjoyed  a bowl of chili, a couple beers, and the snow falling all around me as I walked around this festival.  This is a great event and is somehting that needs to happen in Buffalo.  My hope is that this festival will live on for a long time.
