The Col. Ward Pumping Station will be the setting this weekend for the second annual Buffalo Maritime Heritage Festival.
The event will feature free activities outside the building and a charge of $10 to go inside. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. The pumping station is located just off the 190 at Porter Avenue.
There will be several food trucks, a beer tent with local brews, antique and classic boats, music, a draft horse and activities for kids. Inside, vendors will be selling arts and antiques.
It's also a chance to see the largest collection of vertical, triple expansion, steam pump engines in the world, towering five stories high.
