Relish this season with your whole family at the Allentown Fall Festival and Buffalo Bike Ride!
On Saturday October 11 from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Allen Street will revive its Allentown Fall Festival with artist booths, kids activities, live music, and food trucks galore!
Allen Street will be closed to traffic but open to family fun between Delaware and Main.
Allentown.org has this to say:
The Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural National Historic Site will be hosting children’s activities such as pumpkin carving, face painting and a petting zoo from 1 to 5 PM.
The intersection of Pearl and Allen will be having live music from 2 to 9 PM, with some of Buffalo’s favorite bands.
Franklin and Pearl Streets will be the site of your favorite food trucks throughout the day.
On Allen Street, arts, crafts and goods will be on sale, as well as food offerings from local vendors.
These activities are free and open to the public.
If you’d like to make it even more interesting as a full day event, Go Bike Buffalo will be hosting Buffalo Bike Ride, a 27-mile guided bike tour of the city starting at 9 a.m. from GoBike headquarters at 640 Ellicott St. and wrapping up at the Allentown Fall Festival on Allen St. at 1 p.m.
Go Bike Buffalo does give you an alternative option as well:
The ride will cover 27 scenic miles of Buffalo’s historic streets and parks in two stages, first heading on a 17-mile loop toward Martin Luther King, Jr. Park, then through South Buffalo and back up through downtown to the waterfront. After a rest stop in LaSalle Park riders will have the option to head back to Allentown or continue on the ride up the waterfront, over to Delaware Park and back down to Allentown to enjoy the Fall Festival.
Buffalo Bike Ride requires registration ($35) which includes a T-shirt and food voucher for the Allentown Fall Festival. You can register on GoBikeBuffalo.org/event/buffalo-bike-ride/.
So bring the whole family or just sign up for the 27-mile bike tour yourself and enjoy what Buffalo has to offer this fall in Allentown!
