Vote for your favorite pumpkin carved by the Food Trucks at Truck or Treat on Tuesday, October 27th, 5-8pm the final Food Truck Tuesday for the season.

If the talent displayed at last year’s Truck or Treat is any indication, this year’s entries will be scary, creative, whimsical and fun! Guests attending Truck or Treat are invited to vote for the winning pumpkin.  Knight Slider won in 2014 with many other pumpkins close contenders.

The trucks will be handing out candy to the kids. Costumes encouraged as Workingman’s Dead returns to the stage to recreate the playlists of favorite Grateful Dead concerts of years past!

Come for dinner and enjoy some Halloween fun! Free parking and admission.

Building Larkinville with Larkin Development Group and First Niagara

Larkin Development Group has been engaged in the rebuilding of the Larkinville neighborhood since 2002. This has included a complete street renovation along Seneca and Van Rensselaer Streets along with numerous buildings and spaces including the Larkin at Exchange Building and Larkin Square.

Larkinville as we know it today would not exist without the incredible support of First Niagara.  They are the presenting sponsor today for all the Larkin Square events.  They also provided tremendous support and leadership to rebuild the streets, build Larkin Square and help residents in the neighborhood improve their homes.  Plus they moved their headquarters to Larkinville! On behalf of all who live, work and play in Larkinville, thank you to First Niagara!

Talented filmmaker John Paget created this video showcasing the development of Larkinville and the instrumental role First Niagara had in this. Enjoy!
