Every Saturday from the end of May through the end of October, downtown Buffalo is home to the Farmer’s Market. From farm to table vegetables, homemade breads and jams, to flowers and honey, you will find something to grace your table! Enjoy some music while strolling through the market and enjoy a cup of coffee and walk downtown to the lake to make a full morning of it!
The city of Buffalo has a wonderful music trail in and around Sturges Park and the lake walk on Buffalo Lake. From a large xylophone, to smaller chimes to drums, these life-size instruments can make a big sound. All eleven instruments are designed so they can be played by anyone walking along the trail. They are considered “percussive” instruments because the instruments are played by hitting them, one note – or several notes – at a time.
It might sound strange to have musical instruments outside, especially in Minnesota, but these instruments are made for the outdoors. Created by Freenotes Harmony Parks based in Colorado, the instruments are made mostly of metal, are weather-resistant, and are sturdy enough to last through many Minnesota winters. The first musical playground created by Freenotes Harmony Parks was first installed in Moab, Utah, in 1995 and is still in use today.
The music trail was made a reality by the donations from the local Buffalo Rotary Club and other organizations along with the city of Buffalo, the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce, and many Buffalo residents.
Come enjoy the sights and sounds of the musical trail!
Looking for a fun way to explore beautiful Buffalo? A fun activity for the kids while traveling? Enjoy the Buffalo Roam tour! The Buffalo Championship Rodeo Association had businesses commission the creation and decoration of life-size buffalo statues in 2004. Since then, the herd has grown to 24 life-size statues that can be found in businesses, parks, museums and storefronts all over our friendly town. Each Buffalo has its own design and own story to tell!
Maybe you’ve seen them while driving through? Maybe you noticed them downtown while visiting the area. Maybe you’ve lived here for years and have never truly counted how many there are!
Stop in at the Chamber office (205 Central Avenue) for a map of the statues and start your hunt! Talk about a photo opportunity!! Share your roam photos by tagging your pictures on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram #ItsBetterInBuffalo #BuffaloRoamMN!
