It’s Christmas in July at Buffalo Hollow in Petersburg this weekend.

The annual Bikes, Bands and Brews benefit kicked off at noon Friday at the new location and will rock on through the weekend. On Friday, local bands entertained the crowd, and on Saturday, the Blues Society of Western Pa. will play.

All the proceeds from the two-day event will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, which is aimed at providing aid to wounded Iraq and Afghan veterans.

“My big thing is to make people remember. A lot of people forget there’s still people in Afghanistan getting shot at and we’re here enjoying our freedoms on a great night like tonight,” said Iraq veteran Jesse Mercure, who helped organize the event.

Music will go from noon to midnight on Saturday. They hope to raise around $10,000.
