Open Letter To Those Going To Buffalo’s Italian Festival
Hello there, my name is Ed and I am so happy that you are coming to the Galbani Italian Heritage Festival which is located in beautiful North Buffalo, New York.
As a long-time North Buffalo homeowner and taxpayer, I'm confident that I can speak for most of my friends and neighbors in officially welcoming you to our beautiful corner of the City.
Every summer thousands of people descend to Hertel Avenue in Buffalo to spend 3 days celebrating the heritage, culture, and food of the Italian people who have made Buffalo their home and enriched our amazing communities with their contributions.
The Italian Festival is full of so many amazing activities that you can often have to attend multiple days to be able to take it all in.
As you spend the next few days eating, singing, dancing, stomping, and hanging out with family and friends (both new and old), there are just a few rules that we North Buffalonians would sincerely appreciate if you took note of.
Please Park Legally
We all know how difficult it may seem to find parking in the City when coming to an event, but, it's really not that difficult. As a resident of the great city of Buffalo, there is plenty of street parking and we neighbors love having you in our area, but please park legally. I have had my driveway blocked plenty of times because someone decided to just park anywhere. Trust me, you will find no sympathy here if you get ticketed, booted, and/or towed.
Pick Up Your Trash, Please
Don't you hate it when someone comes into your neighborhood and throws their trash in your front yard? Well, so do we! There are plenty of trash bins all over Hertel Avenue, so please, do us a favor and throw your trash away.
Remember If You Need To Relieve Yourself, There Are Porta-Potties Everywhere
Does this really need to be mentioned? Yes, yes it does. Please do not use our yards as a toilet.
Have Fun, But Remember People Live Here
Buffalo has some of the most amazing festivals in the world and the best part is that we get to have a ton of fun while often eating great food. Just remember as you walk around North Buffalo, that people live here, so please treat our neighborhood like you want others to treat yours.
