The Broadway Market will be hosting a Holiday Train Show on Saturday and Sunday, December 21 and 22 at the market. This weekend is also the last for the market’s annual Kriskindlemart! What a great way to finish off your holiday shopping for 2013 by shopping locally with market, holiday season and train vendors.
The Buffalo Public Schools have a long standing tradition of playing at the Broadway Market during the holiday season. That tradition continues this week at the Market with lunchtime performances each day.

(By Joe Kirchmyer) A memorial service remembering Western New York’s homeless who have passed away during 2013 will take place at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21, at the Lt. Colonel Matt Urban HOPE Center, 385 Paderewski Drive, Buffalo. Presented by the WNY Coalition for the Homeless, the event is purposefully scheduled on the first day of winter, the longest day of the year, to bring greater attention to the plight of the homeless.
The event, free and open to the public, will feature guest speakers, music by the Buffalo City Mission Choir and a candlelight vigil, followed by refreshments. Information about local resources for the homeless will also be available during the event.
This year, the Coalition is encouraging members of the community to join in honoring the lives of those who have passed on — sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers and friends — and calling for an end to homelessness in Buffalo. Homelessness is a community problem, so it is important that Western New Yorkers come together as a community to address it.
