Toy Giveaway, Face-Painting, Carnival, Tree Lighting & Frozen Characters Tomorrow (Saturday, Dec 8)
City of Light 2018 will follow in the footsteps of what has become an annual tradition. The B-Team Buffalo organizers came with the idea whereas each year a different Buffalo neighborhood is chosen to receive what can be summed up as a Holiday Gift of Love in the form of a group of volunteers decorating numerous home in the chosen neighborhood, The neighborhoods chosen have many residents who may be less fortunate than the norm, so BTeam Buffalo chose these neighborhoods as the recipients.
Along with the decorations of the homes, there is a Tree Lighting, Toy Giveaway, Christmas Carolers, the whole works ...I believe Santa will be on hand as well. Anyone can attend tomorrow starting at 9 am. A group of volunteers comprised of local; professionals and college students, and local residents.
WBLK WILL BE THERE ... COME MEET & JOIN US
