The 11th edition of the popular Buffalo LIVING Tour takes to the northern suburbs on Saturday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“This edition will see us visiting a total of six upscale living spaces, with great attractions that make for a compelling reason to see all of them,” remarks Paul D. Maurer, Buffalo LIVING Tour chairman. As with all of the previous events, the entire Buffalo LIVING Tour is free.
Tour goers can download a pamphlet online or pick one up at a northern suburb coffee shop, library or restaurant. The pamphlet features a punch card that gets validated at each spotlight location. For those who visit all six, many great prizes will be drawn from the validated pamphlets.
The top prizes will include a weekend stay in Ellicottville courtesy of Zaepfel Development and season tickets for two to the M&T Broadway series of musicals at Shea’s Performing Arts Center courtesy of The Amberleigh! Additionally, each spotlight location will provide either entertainment, food, beverages or all three.
Attendees can start anywhere on the tour or take the free We Care shuttles which will originate at Remmington Woods and continue to all locations from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day.
Here are the Northtowns properties that will be toured, listed in the order that the shuttles will follow (and the most efficient driving pattern):
