Please join in the festivities as the Buffalo Newspaper Guild once again marches in the annual AFL-CIO Labor Day Parade and Picnic on Monday, Sept. 1. The fun, free event welcomes all Guild members, spouses, kids and well-behaved pets.
Since this is a major bargaining year for us, we’re hoping for high turnout on Monday. Even if you haven’t been to the Labor Day Parade in recent years, we hope you’ll make time for this fun event this year.
The parade will head down Abbott Road in South Buffalo to Cazenovia Park, where free hotdogs, hamburgers, snacks and drinks will be provided to all. continue»
