The Buffalo Zoo has announced the lineup for its second annual BuffaLoveFest, an event featuring all things "Buffalo." The inaugural BuffaLoveFest in 2013 was so successful, zoo officials decided to make the event bigger and better in 2014.
"We had a lot more people attend last year than we expected," said Katie Jordan, senior events coordinator. "To accommodate a larger crowd, this year's event will have more than double the amount of food trucks we had last year."
Other additions include an exclusive beer from Flying Bison, a slow-motion photo booth, Buffalo celebrity photo-op and autograph table, and more.
One thing that won't change at this year's BuffaLoveFest will be a performance by the BuffaLoveBirds All Star Band, featuring Lance Diamond. Other performers include local favorites The Steam Donkeys, Whiskey Reverb, and DJ sets by Spooky Business and Camaican.
In addition to Buffalonians' favorite bands and food trucks, the event will include a Buffalo trivia tournament, and a variety of Buffalo-centric vendors, including local artisans, T-shirt printers and jewelers.
BuffaLoveFest will take place Friday, May 30, from 5:30-9 p.m. at the Buffalo Zoo, 300 Parkside Ave. The event is limited to ages 21 and up. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $30 at the door, and include two drink tickets. To order tickets online, visit www.buffalozoo.org.
BuffaLoveFest is presented by Mutual of Omaha and 2 Find Your Home.
