I am still recovering from Garden Walk Buffalo and the National Garden Festival (and doing all the work from my day job that went undone). Garden Walk Buffalo was another big success.
|It looked like this solid for two days |
(between 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. both days)
There was LOTS of coverage from all three local TV stations as well as from the Buffalo News. The News had articles about the Walk from the Thursday before through the Monday after. I'll post some of the articles in the coming days.
A research company (one of those "mall intercept" firms) was hired by Visit Buffalo Niagara to survey visitors. Zip code collection was also done to gauge where people are coming from. This year, we helped fill local hotels to at or near capacity, so we were especially curious to see the zip code results, which is not yet in. I'll cover some of those results in upcoming posts.
In our own yard, I estimate we had over 2,000 visitors over two days (my neighbor Steve counted 1,814). In past years, there were often lulls in visitors, this year there were no lulls. Constant people i the garden. They traverse mostly my driveway, so no harm done. I can't imagine what damage gets done to other gardener's grass paths!
