Buffalo Reviews

1 review
I grew up off a rural gravel road, but a few minutes drive south from my home you get to Buffalo, where I went to my first school and accumulated some of my most influential experiences. Its got that small town vibe you eithet love or hate and you're also pretty much gaurenteed to see a full park in the summer of kids and families getting together to play baseball games and cheer on their loved ones. The fireworks in the park are an annual event you look forward to every July 4th, and Buffalo days never dissapoints as a casual, fun event to liven up hot summer days. And I can't not mention when the new Buffalo scool was built. I still remember the excitement of seeing myself talking about the schools A/C on the news! It was just that much more exciting because my families little farm house up the road didn't have central A/C either. Like, it was a luxury. Can you even picture that these days? Yep, it was an awesome little town.
