Galleria of Shops Celebrates First Year

     PAINTED POST (WENY) -- A Painted Post business is celebrating its first anniversary with a special family-friendly Mardi Gras party.

     The Victory Highway Galleria of Shops, which is home to Pookie's Little Britches, opened on March 16, 2013.  On March 1, the store is hosing a Mardi Gras party from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, as an early celebration.

     The fun afternoon will feature music, activities, and even small King Cake tastes for the first 200 people.  Owner Val Rook says she's hosted the Mardi Party in the past, and it's always been a hit with the community.

     "It was so much fun, people had a great time," says Rook.  "The DJ played the kids music and they danced, it was fun.  I want to make this an annual event."
