Christmas comes to Fort Erie! (for our Buffalo fans) SATURDAY

We are really excited to bring our new Christmas Caravan concert to Ridgeway (Fort Erie).  Trust me it will be worth the drive over the international border when you can buy concert tickets and drinks at 2/3 the cost (with dollar conversion!)
