Today at the Northtown Plaza in Amherst is the Spring Carnival.  I did check out this carnival last year and I will say I was impressed.  It’s more aimed at the little ones but adults can have some fun as well.  Plus last year they had really great taste in music (yes they had Jack Fm on!)  This year kick off spring at the Carnival!  There will be amusement park rides for all age groups including ones like the raiders, a 3 story Indiana Jones adventure course (yes feel free to wear your sweet fedora!), interactive games for the whole family, and of course spend some time with Mr. No the clown!  Along with that there will be your favorite summer time foods you can get your hands on like hot dogs, caramel apples, funnel cakes, my personal favorite cotton candy, and more!  Even better there is some ride specials today!  Check out the Spring Carnival today all day at the Northtown Plaza.

Another great jacktivity is the 17th Annual Family Fun Day at Coca Cola Field.  WNY United will celebrate the 17th Annual Family Fun Day from noon until 3p.  The event is meant to celebrate a family friendly start to the summer alongside the Buffalo Bison’s.  The kids will love this one because they have set up a carnival like atmosphere.  There will be a bounce house along with games, face painting and more.  Tickets are only $8 presale or $10 at the door which is seriously an amazing deal especially with all the activities you get and a baseball game.  After the family has had the chance to hang out and have fun stick around and cheer on the Buffalo Bison’s.  Oh and did I mention that your ticket will also include lunch!  That’s right!  It’s the 17th Annual Family Fun Day at Coca Cola Field starting at noon.
