Each Thursday over the summer the city puts on a musical concert in the heart of downtown at the square. IT is definately the place to be over the summer. Thousands of people flock down there - and you get all sorts of different people to the various shows.
They sell beer and pop and water and food as well - all ticket based. The bands are all varied and supported by local radio stations.
The main problem has been the great success and demand for these free concerts in recent years. The crowds seem to continue to grow - and now if you want to be able to see the stage - you'll have to show up before 6 if you want to get a good spot - but it's well worth it!
Great place to meet up with old friends and then head downtown afterwards to Chippewa and visit the bars afterwards.
The thing to do on a Thursday evening in Buffalo - period.
