After a long 2 year pandemic, there are a lot of great artists and concerts coming to Western New York this summer. From T-Pain to Nelly to Tim McGraw to Patti Labelle, there are many options for us Buffalonians to get out and have a good time. This includes me because I plan to summer as I've never summered before.

Another great two (2) day concert series has just been announced, and after a 2-year hiatus, the University United Festival is back on UB's South Campus, right across the street from the Buffalo VA Hospital.

This free 2-day concert series is scheduled for Saturday, June 11, 2022, and Sunday, June 12, 2022, inside UB's Rotary Field. The annual festival was created by City of Buffalo University District Common Council Member Rasheed NC Wyatt, who has said he's committed to bettering Buffalo and hopes this concert series helps to bring the community together.

In addition to the performers, there will be a kids zone, food trucks, local vendors, and information tables.

7 Exciting Things To See And Do When Canada Opens

Going over the border has so many benefits for many Americans, people come from all over the world to Canada all the time. Buffalo and Niagra Falls residents are spoiled because we have the advantage of being so very close, for most people here the border is less than 20 minutes away. The thing that I have noticed over the years is, the main strip in Niagra Falls Ontario gets bigger all the time with more things to see and do. Did you know, that the first hotel was built on Ferry Rd. in the tourist area back in 1833? it's amazing to see all of the additions, even since the 90s.
