— The free event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. near the Humphrey Nature Center and will feature snacks, live demonstrations of equipment, how-to's, and guided outings and group activities. "This one-day festival assembles over 30 businesses, agencies, and services to be demonstrators and activity leaders for the day. These demonstrators and activity leaders represent just a fraction of the opportunities for all park visitors to hike, kayak, camp, glamp, fish, dine, tree tent, whitewater raft, trail ride, stay in historic estates, explore deep ravines and nature preserves, capture professional-quality images with a phone camera, challenge yourself to become more comfortable in  the outdoors, and fly the skies in a hot air balloon. All of these businesses and services are based within 1 hour of Letchworth State Park," a release says. 

Cannabis bakery to offer marijuana brownies and cupcakes (by Lia Lando) — A restaurant in Basom c
alled "BiscuitLife" closed for the season last November and did not reopen in April as initially planned due to inflated costs. Now it's looking forward to finally reopening with a new, limited menu. Starting this Friday the "Cannabis Bakery" will only offer marijuana-infused brownies and cupcakes at its drive thru. These types of products became legal in March of 2021 when the state legalized marijuana use for people 21 and older. The state started handing out licenses to farmers to grow the crop in April and the hope is that "retail licenses" will become available for stores by early next year. The bakery's location on a reservation allows them to sell the products now instead of waiting for a license. The bakery is open Friday 12-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m - 3 p.m. It's located at 941 Bloomingdale Road, Basom, NY 14013.
