The Erie County Fairgrounds in Hamburg is all lit up and ready for the start of the Holiday Festival of Lights! The fun starts this weekend and runs through Christmas. The crews have also been busy repairing some of the things that were damaged after a tornado ripped through this past summer.Here are a few Tweets from the day the tornado hit.

And below are photos of the gate after crews worked on restorations.

I was able to grab a quick picture of the gate area along McKinley Parkway that has been repaired. The landmark iron fence and gate was twisted and tattered by the high winds that left $3 million in damage to the grounds and the surrounding neighborhoods as well.
