BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - The country's largest garden walk wrapped up Sunday afternoon.
Thousands of people flocked to homes around Buffalo to look at what local gardeners spend countless hours working on.
News 4's Sally Cunningham explained why Garden Walk is such an important event for the Queen City. "One of the unusual things about Buffalo gardens that people observe is the lifestyle it reveals. It reveals how we are out there in our backyards, we're sharing it with the public, how it is friendly and open. This is rare, you don't get this kind of warmth and welcome in another part of the country," she said.
Buffalo Garden Walk is held annually on the last weekend of July.
