TASTE OF NIAGARA REGION January 31st, 2015

About ten days ago, I saw a poster at the Lockport Library for this event. It was being put on to benefit HEART OF NIAGARA (an animal shelter).   I asked Peggy if she wanted to go with me.  She said an enthusiastic YES.    So I purchased the $20 each tickets online.

We really didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be a great event.  It was in a convention center in downtown Niagara Falls.

 Restaurants, caterers and bakeries had tables set up around the perimeter of a huge banquet hall.  Each one was giving out one or more samples of items.  We were each given this card to take to the various tables so they could check off that we had received our sample.

Some of the vendors were giving out small samples, but some were giving out very large samples.  We tried many of them and also took many samples home with us.  I particularly loved the BORSCHT which was made by the staff that runs the catering service at the convention center.

After we left Niagara Falls, we went to TRADER JOES and we each picked up several items.

Festival of Trees in Lewiston ADVENTURE December 27, 2014

My cousin Becky was off from work for a couple of weeks (she drives a school bus) and we wanted to do something together.  We met up at my house this morning and headed to Lewiston for the FESTIVAL OF TREES at the Power Vista in Lewiston, New York.

We enjoyed seeing all the trees.  Each one represented an area agency that helps people.

After that we went out to lunch in Lewiston.  My complete set of pictures can be seen here:
