Buffalo Place Inc. announced its popular "Thursday at the Square" summer concert series will now be known as "Thursday at the Harbor." All concerts will take place at the Erie Canal Harbor Central Wharf in downtown Buffalo.

The initiative is part of an effort to create more activity and generate "millions of economic impact" into the waterfront area," said Anthony J. Colucci III, Buffalo Place president and board of directors vice chairman, at a media event Thursday.

While the location is different, "One thing won't change: They'll still all be free," Colucci said.

Here's more from Colucci:

 

... and here it is. Buffalo Place is offering 12 weeks of free concerts, plus five weekends of paid events.
