Batavia Downs is a great place for fun and food they have live entertainment and the games are fun to. They give away free plays daily and many chances to win. This year I took my little boy to see Santa and the weaner dog races so they are fun for the family as well. Great place to visit

Good place to go when you want to get away and have a little fun and maybe win some cash. I really like the made in America store!
