The event is open to all. If you want to learn more about the WNY GIS Users Group, GIS/mapping, GIS and related technology, or just want to have a great time, this is the place to be. The Buffalo River Fest Park also features a number of amenities including a boat launch, a wharf, a boardwalk, and an amphitheater.
