Pastor Anita Williams was inspired to create a community event one day while sitting in Martin Luther King Jr. park, some 26 years ago.
She wanted to change the views of Buffalo’s east side, while also improving, enhancing and helping the residents who call it home. That’s why she founded the “Taking It to the Streets” Crusade and Rally Festival, that brings together members of the East Side for a weekend of family-oriented fun.
There’s food, health tents, music and games – Anita says anything that aims to improve residents’ quality of life is welcome at the event. It takes place Saturday and Sunday August 16 and 17; call 716-891-4760 for more information.
