BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The holidays are a time for family and friends, but it's also a time to shop til you drop!
With that in mind dozens of businesses and organizations located in Buffalo's Grant-Ferry Business District created what is now called, Peace, Love and Grant Street. It's a holiday shopping event designed to encourage people to shop, eat, and explore the area. Stores were open until 8:00 p.m. Many featured festive decorations, live music, and holiday specials.
"We want to sustain business here to create job opportunities and do business locally, we need good strong community districts within the residential areas and this is one of them," said Buffalo Common Councilmember David Rivera.
Some of the area's popular food trucks also took part in the event.
