At Empire City/Yonkers Raceway - Yonkers, NY.
Saturday October 22, 2011
5:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Kick off the Fall season with the Empire City Fall Harvest Festival.
They are celebrating harness racing and New York State agriculture (New York State Apple, Cheese and Wine) product sampling. Bring the whole family for horse racing, live music, food and more.
The leaves begin to change color, a sure sign that Autumn is in the air, and that the Fall Harvest Festival is back for its third year at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway on Saturday, October 22. The one-day celebration of New York State harness racing, agriculture and produce for fans of all ages is on the schedule from 5:30 to 9:30 pm on the horse track apron. Admission is free.
There will be activities for the young and those young at heart: harness races, pony rides, a petting zoo, pumpkin painting, and musical entertainment. There will also be New York State Apple, Cheese and Wine product sampling. Two large tents will house the musical entertainment, as well as a wide variety of food and beverages for the entire family (Last year they had BBQ Hot Dogs, Burgers, Sausages, Drinks and much much more for reasonable prices). There will be a free pinecone scented candle giveaway, for Empire Club members, as well as a pie-eating contest featuring Yonkers Raceway's drivers squaring off against public contestants.
Check the Empire City Website for more details and directions.
This is a fun annual event we like and think you will also.
