Quaker Arts Festival this weekend

Payroll tax calendar of the day: quarterly sales tax returns are due September 20th.  Monthly payroll tax deposits for September are due October 15th.

Autumn officially starts this Sunday.   Where did the summer go?  At least there will be some fall festivals coming up to enjoy being outdoors and the warm weather that’s still around for few more weeks.

Saturday and Sunday the 21st and 22nd is the Quaker Arts Festival in Orchard Park.   Do some holiday shopping, take in all the beautiful arts and crafts, and watch the entertainment.  Shuttle buses will be running on both days from the parking lot by the Chestnut Ridge tennis courts.   While you’re there, you will want to enjoy something to eat.  The pumpkin funnel cakes look especially intriguing!

Sad to see the summer go

Payroll tax calendar of the day:  Monthly payroll tax deposits are due Monday, September 16th.  Don’t forget that NY withholding will be due when the liability for the quarter reaches $700.  It will be due in either 3 or 5 business days, depending on the total taxes you paid in the last year.  Quarterly sales tax returns are due September 20th.

Hard to believe that it was only 2 weeks ago that I was enjoying the summer at the Canadian National Exhibition.   Seems like ages ago.   Now starts the long eleven month countdown to next summer’s Corn Festival, Erie County Fair, and CNE.  Sigh ……….

In 2012, the CNE built this new skyride.  While I can see why all the riders should follow these rules, as they are passing over the crowds, one does wonder why it would be necessary to tell everyone.

CNE Skyride 2013

Was it really necessary to tell people that?

Erie County Fair – The best seat in the house

Payroll tax calendar of the day:  Monthly deposits for July are due August 15th.

The Erie County Fair in Hamburg is well underway, and there are several new renovations on the grounds.  There is a new restroom building next to the souvenir log cabin, which is very nice and modern, but is busy and has a line.

The best bathrooms on the grounds are in the casino.  They’re always clean, not busy, and if you’re cheap like me, they have no maid or porter to tip.  Go to Gate 4 and turn right into the casino, but don’t forget to have your hand stamped so you can get back into the fairgrounds.  The bathrooms are right inside the entryway on the left.

Preparations were shaping up at the fairgrounds as of Wednesday; several of the vendors were setting up and various fixtures were set out at the head of the midway for placement around the grounds.  Among the vendors already setting up were pastries, sandwiches, and cotton candy.  There were also some trailers in the McKinley parking lot awaiting setup, including vendors for cannoli and fried dough.

Just outside of the lower grandstand entrance were these picnic benches awaiting placement.  Check out the stands already set up in what will be the food court midway.

The stands are starting to set up on July 31st.
