Where We Live: Cheektowaga


As annual summer celebrations begin to wind down, there’s still at least one more church lawn fete on the calendar.

The fun begins at 5 p.m. Friday on the grounds of Infant of Prague Catholic Church, 921 Cleveland Drive – at the Cleveland Drive exit of the Thruway.

Live music performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday night in the Beer Garden.

Saturday’s events begin at noon, and include a classic car show from 1 to 4 p.m. and a watermelon eating contest from 3 to 5 p.m. A barbecue chicken dinner sale begins at 3 p.m.; tickets are $9 and are available in advance at the parish office or at the door the day of the event.

There will be rides, raffles and games of chances on both days.
