Rockin’ the Downs kicks off tonight at 5pm with Tommy DeCarlo. Emily took a ride out to Batavia on Monday to literally get a taste for what’s happening at this entertainment hot spot.

Emily is with Henry Wojtaszek, president of Batavia Downs who shows us all the fun we can have at Batavia Downs.

For entertainment they have horse racing, the casino, restaurants, the hotel and the Rockin’ the Downs concert series on Friday nights. It started last Friday and will continue on for eleven weeks. Henry Wojtaszek says, “The line-up this year is outstanding, it’s really good.” Tonight the concert is Tommy DeCarlo, the lead singer of Boston and opening for him is Rudy Cardenas, Journey Tribute vocalist.
