Taste of Buffalo celebrates 30 years this weekend

A giant birthday cake will adorn historic Niagara Square this weekend as the Taste of Buffalo celebrates its 30th birthday party.

Joe Lane, Chairman of the 2013 Taste of Buffalo, says the birthday party theme will be at the center of many of the weekend's events. As part of the celebration, Tops will be providing birthday cupcakes, Nick Charlap's Ice Cream has produced a special ice cream called "Taste The Party," and revelers will get a chance to join in the singing of "Happy Birthday" to mark the event's 30 years in Downtown Buffalo.

According to Lane, over 50 restaurants and food trucks will provide over 200 food items during the two-day event. Once again, several "health choice" items will be part of the weekend's menu.
