Celebrate all things blueberry at the annual Humphrey Blueberry Day! Since 1996 the community of Humphrey has come together to celebrate Blueberry Day. Blueberry Day includes an all-you-can-eat blueberry pancake breakfast, raffles, games, bake sale, and other family-oriented activities. Funds raised from Blueberry Day have helped the local volunteer fire department, paid for town beautification projects, and funded other quality of life endeavors.

The core of Blueberry Day is the involvement of friends and neighbors who organize and conduct the event. Childs Blueberries is a widely regarded and highly successful blueberry farm located on top of the hills of Humphrey who also donate all the blueberries for this Festival. Ideal soil and weather and a deep family tradition produces the finest blueberries in the world and a community partner. 

Enjoy everything blueberry on Saturday, August 12th at the Humphrey Fire Hall, 4591 Humphrey Road, Humphrey NY. For more information, please call 716-945-5123.

There will be blueberry dessert contests, face painting, family games, raffles and of course, ALL YOU CAN EAT BLUEBERRY PANCAKES from 8am to 11:30am.  Adults are $5 and children under 10 are $3.

Meaning of the word Cattaraugus

CATTARAUGUS, from a Seneca Indian word meaning “bad smelling banks,” referring to the odor of natural gas leaking from rock seams. http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/pdfs/countynames.pdf

The word "Cattaraugus" means "foul-smelling river bank." This name is a result of the natural gas that oozes from the river mud. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cattaraugus_Creek.

In our opinion, only some of the river banks are bad smelling. Come on over and visit a creek in Cattaraugus County and tell us what you think.
