Your 2023 Fall Bucket List In Western New York
Although the fall season officially begins on September 23, the sweater weather really begins in August.
With people already flocking to Mayer Bros for cider and pumpkin spice soon returning to Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, and other local coffee shops, some may argue that fall begins in August – or at least, the fall planning does.

You have to think, too – the Buffalo Bills have their first preseason games in the month of August.
