The American Legion is celebrating its 100th year and the Queen City will be a major part of the centennial party.
Officials with The American Legion announced on Saturday that their annual convention will be held in Downtown Buffalo this July.
The week-long event is expected to bring more than $2,000,000 to the region.
Officials said the recent changes to the city helped bring the event back to Buffalo.
The American Legion was founded in 1919 during the after-math of World War 1.
