New! Free Family Fun Day @ Larkin Square

This Saturday, May 14, families are invited to attend a free Family Fun Day at Larkin Square in Larkinville. The weather will be glorious, and conducive to a variety of programming by the Valley Community Association. Children will enjoy activities that include photography (CEPA Gallery), theater (Shea’s Performing Arts Center), ZUMBA (LA Movement), science (Buffalo Science Museum) and juggling and other circus fun (Benjamin Berry’s Circus). The programming is geared towards ages K-8, but all ages are welcome to participate.

Creativity abounds

Guests to Family Fun Day will also get a chance to experience Buffalo Children’s Business Fair – a youth artisan market with items made and sold by local students (coordinated by The Foundry). Participants are welcome to stay the duration, or drop in at any time during the course of the day.

“Family friendly programming has always been a priority at Larkin Square,” said Kayla Zemsky, Vice President of Larkin Development Group. “This new event is the perfect way to kick off the 10th anniversary season of programming in the Square.”

Aside from thoughtful programming, there will be plenty of eats and treats, including Cheesy Chick Food Truck in Larkin Square, Swan Street Diner, Toasted, and Paula’s Donuts for breakfast and lunch.

If you’ve been missing Larkin Square over the last couple of years, due to the pandemic, it’s time to get back in the swing of things. And what better way to celebrate ever-evolving Larkinville, than by taking the kids to this fantastic outing.
