Many of us have Monday off and are planning to do some exciting things for the long weekend that is coming up. Not only are the Buffalo Bills getting ready for a big game on Sunday night against Kansas City on Sunday Night Football, there are also other things going on for you and your family to enjoy this weekend.

The weather looks pretty decent for this weekend. There are a few showers in the forecast but that won’t keep people away from the fun in Ellicottville this weekend.

After taking 2020 off because of the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fall Festival 2021 is back and it is going to be a great event for families as well. According to organizers and the website ellicottvilleny.com, The carnival has been replaced by a family friendly "Kidzone" and fundraiser for the P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative.

This is a great tradition and it is so good to see it back again this year. Keep in mind if you are headed down to Ellicottville, or anywhere south of Springville this weekend, and plan on taking the 219,you may see some extra traffic on Friday afternoon.

The leaves are starting to change and look great for your trip down to Ellicottville this weekend. The list of events is pretty incredible throughout the village and Holiday Valley as well. If you have never been to Ellicottville and are wondering about skiing, this may be a great opportunity to take a look before the snow starts to fly. There is also a ski swap that is planned at Holiday Valley that starts on Friday and will continue through Saturday. If you need skis for the kids this may be the perfect opportunity to get a great pair of skis at the best price possible.

Enjoy your weekend and have fun in Ellicottville... a true gem in Western New York.
