BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - For years, Buffalo's waterfront was virtually empty, but that's no longer the case, and this summer there will be more events than ever before.
The Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation revealed Friday that around 800 different events are coming to Canalside. Officials expect 800,000 visitors to take advantage of all the activities, including the return of the Saturday Artisan Market, and fitness programs like yoga and Zoomba.
ECHDC President Thomas Dee said, "So this year, 800 events. That's really incomprehensible. If you think about it. Last year it was 425. To put all of this in perspective. The year before 300, the year before that 115, and before that virtually nothing."
If people want to get a better feel for Canalside, officials are holding an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
