Finding something to do in Buffalo is not difficult. There are indoor and outdoor activities, sights to see, sounds to hear, or even mysteries to be solved!
Every Saturday from the end of May through the end of October, downtown Buffalo is home to the Farmer’s Market. From farm to table vegetables, homemade breads and jams, to flowers and honey, you will find something to grace your table! Enjoy some music while strolling through the market and enjoy a cup of coffee and walk downtown to the lake to make a full morning of it!
The city of Buffalo has a wonderful music trail in and around Sturges Park and the lake walk on Buffalo Lake. From a large xylophone, to smaller chimes to drums, these life-size instruments can make a big sound. All eleven instruments are designed so they can be played by anyone walking along the trail. They are considered “percussive” instruments because the instruments are played by hitting them, one note – or several notes – at a time. Click here for a map of the instruments.
It might sound strange to have musical instruments outside, especially in Minnesota, but these instruments are made for the outdoors. Created by Freenotes Harmony Parks based in Colorado, the instruments are made mostly of metal, are weather-resistant, and are sturdy enough to last through many Minnesota winters. The first musical playground created by Freenotes Harmony Parks was first installed in Moab, Utah, in 1995 and is still in use today.
The music trail was made a reality by the donations from the local Buffalo Rotary Club and other organizations along with the city of Buffalo, the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce, and many Buffalo residents.
Come enjoy the sights and sounds of the musical trail!
