10th Annual Boom Days - Saturday, March 31

Join Us Saturday At The
10th Annual Boom Days

Every half hour experience the FREE grain elevator tours starting at 4:00pm with the last tour at 6:30pm. You will be able to feel the history as you walk through. When the lights go on the bands will start playing, it will be the first time the lights were on in the Perot Grain Elevator since 1993! Come just to be part of the memories - as far as we know, no other grain elevator in the world is equipped with a stage!  

A fireworks display around 10pm will light up the Lake Erie shoreline and the grain elevators with a show that promises to amaze all!

The Edward M. Cotter Fireboat was designated a historical landmark in 1996, after over 100 years of protecting the Grain Elevators. It is way cool and will be docked at the Perot and available for tours. Some folks will be able to board and witness the Boom Ball cast overboard to race down the mighty Niagara, marking the end of winter and the start of spring in Buffalo.

The live bands rockin' at the elevators are the IF's and the Mark Winsick Band. Just the fact that we have a stage for the bands in the Perot is unbelievable and so exciting. This will be an event to remember, people! 
Did you know the Elevators were built in 1909!

Dress warmly and bring all of your friends. Get ready for a great time! This event will be talked about for a long time. We have a bunch of heaters that will be working overtime to warm the place up, but it will be a bit chilly - that's the nature of the grain elevator any time of year. Layers people layers!

Don't forget there will be plenty of food to warm you up, too. Food trucks from a cadre of Buffalo's gourmet bistros will be available including the brand new Cheesy Chick Food Truck, the Roaming Buffalo, Whole Hog, Rolling Joes + Sweet Temptations.

Be sure to visit us at and look for all Boom Days information.
