Hamburg Has A Beautiful New Mural [PHOTOS]
If you drive in to the Village of Hamburg this summer, you will see the colors of Hamburg's newest mural. The large, vibrant work of art greets you as you drive along Lakeview Road.
I was able to grab a few photos of this incredible work when I took our son to a t-ball game this past weekend. I love the colors and if you look closely, you can see the names of various familiar buildings that have been a staple in the Village of Hamburg for decades.
Hamburg's Newest Mural
I watched an artist for a minute and they made it look easy! It was as if the wall was made for this mural that is part of the entrance to Legion Field where thousands of kids and parents arrive to play baseball or softball every summer. Hamburg is one of the fastest growing villages and towns in Western New York and has been in the news recently for the water tower on the other side of the town near the Thruway. There is a push to repaint the water tower to look like a gigantic Hamburger which would be a way to symbolize the history of the hamburger which had it's beginning in Hamburg at the Erie County Fair.
The popular Hamburg Burger Fest is back this year and rounds out a great couple of months this summer in the Southtowns.
