Fall is such a fantastic time of the year!  The leaves are changing colors, the smell of apple cider is in the air, and the autumn air is crisp.  Definitely my favorite time!  With this time of the year rolls in the fall festivities!  Take time this weekend to enjoy the fall!


Head today to Springville for their Oktoberfest and German Car and Motorcycle Show!  Since I am German this one definitely sparked my interest when I read it but whether you’re German or not make sure you check out this even!  The event runs all day today till 10pm at Fireman’s Park.  Of course there will be some amazing live entertainment!  The Springville Jazz Orchestra is going to kick it off first from 3 to 6pm.  Following that they have the Frankfurters from 6p to 10p.  Trust me you will be up dancing the entire night!  Along with that you can’t forget about the German Beer and of course some amazing authentic German food!  Definitely come to this event with an empty stomach!  Finally finish off the evening in Springville with their fantastic contest like Hotdog eating, yodeling, and best Costume.  Yes you read that right there is a Yodeling Contest!!!  It’s all today in Springville their Oktoberfest and German Car and Motorcycle Show!

Another great family event that you’ll want to check out today is Paws in the Park Walk all to fundraise money for the SPCA serving Erie County.  I’m a big animal lover so this one was a definite must!  Everyone young and old is invited out to this event at Beaver Island State Park today and of course bring along your dog if you would like!  It’s a two mile walk that will raise funds for the SPCA serving Erie County.  The whole day they have lots of events as well like K-9 demonstrations by the Cheektowaga Police Department, lunch for the participants, and even inflatable bounce houses.  My favorite part when I read about the event is the contest.  There will be judged dog tricks, dog costumes, dog-owner look alike, an agility course for dogs, and the waggiest tail contest!  How much cuter can the day get!  The day is packed with fun for every minute so head out early today to Beaver Island State Park for the Paws in the Park Fundraising Walk.
