I love bonfires and haven't been to one in forever! Flames Across Niagara is a unique event that takes place in the city of Buffalo. Part commemorating the of the War of 1812, part reenactment, part pyro fun, part waterfront celebration, and all Black Rock inspired, for one evening only, Squaw Island plays host to a public gathering that pays tribute to our past, present and future.
FREE. Event takes place "snow or shine".
The Buffalo History Museum has free admission this day from 10am-5pm if you've never been there.
Directions/Parking: Parking is in designated areas at the site. The park entrance is off Niagara Street just south of where Amherst St. meets Niagara St. and will be lit with torches and signage. Follow the road across the International Bridge, bear right and bonfire will be on the left along the river.
Dress accordingly, this is OUTSIDE.
There is a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at 5:40 as your reward if you are on time.
