When you live in a neighborhood that does not have much going on, festive seasons such as Christmas and New Year can be pretty dull. Yet, if you are lucky enough to live in a city like Buffalo, something new and exciting is always happening. You can always expect concerts, shows, and other events in December. Whether you are looking for fun stuff to do as a family or need a night out with friends, Buffalo is sure to have an event that suits your needs.
Ellicott Development is a well-established real estate company in the city and has compiled a list of some of the upcoming events in Buffalo that you may want to consider.
December Events to Watch Out For
Ice at Canalside
Ice at Canalside presents skating opportunities at Buffalo’s Waterfront. This must-do winter activity in Buffalo is suitable for families and friends, as it is reasonably priced. You can buy tickets online in advance or at the venue itself.
The rink is open from Monday to Thursday from 11 am-9 pm, Friday and Saturday from 11 am-10 pm, and Sunday from 11 am-7 pm.
Besides skating, a DJ will play music at the rink from 6 pm-9 pm on Fridays and 3 pm-6 pm on Sundays. However, this event takes a break on December 25th and January 1st.
Zoo Lights at the Buffalo Zoo
The Buffalo Zoo will be transformed into a dazzling winter wonderland for its annual Zoo Lights event. Wander through this illuminated and welcoming Zoo after hours. This year, the event runs on select nights from November 27th, 2022, to January 1st, 2023.
Visitors can expect to see over 500,000 lights, live entertainment, and festive food. The event opens from 5:30 pm-9 pm, but doors close at exactly 8:30 pm.
