Reminder.....Get Your Ornaments Ready for the Festival of Lights

Well my dear fair friends, just a friendly reminder from your Erie County Fair Blogger.  I told you a couple of weeks ago about the great ornament compeition that will be going on during the run of the Festival of Lights being held at The Fairgrounds in Hamburg.  Well the time has come already for you to take your completed ornaments to the Fairgrounds office and get them officially entered into the competition! 

Handmade tree ornaments are being accepted at the Erie County Agricultural Society's main office during business hours of 9am to 5pm all of this week.  They will then be judged and displayed in the Expo Hall during the Festival that runs from November 23 through December 30.  They will also be judged by the Festival of Lights guests for a “People’s Choice” award.

You still have time to get those creative juices going and make an ornament and maybe even win a great prize.  The rules are listed below.

Weber’s Brand Celebrates 90 Years of Mustard-making in Buffalo

The year 2012 marked a significant milestone for one well-known Buffalo business, a company now just 10 short years away from hitting the century mark!

Heintz & Weber Co., Inc., was founded in 1922 at the Broadway Market by Joseph C. Weber and John Heintz. Heintz, no relation to the H.J. Heinz Company of Pittsburgh, was bought out by Weber in 1926, and the company has remained family owned and operated in Buffalo ever since.
