BUFFALO -- It's Fat Tuesday and that means Mardi Gras for many Western New Yorkers.
Looking for the action? A parade is about to kick off at 5 p.m. on Elmwood Avenue near Buffalo State and will head toward Chippewa.
Wristbands on sale for $5 at Delaware Avenue and Chippewa Street will get you into more than 40 participating bars in the party neighborhood. Proceeds benefit the Hospice Foundation.
