Sunny skies with a high today in the low 80’s, that’s the forecast for this Independence Day in Batavia.
We’re also expecting clear skies for tonight’s fireworks.
There is just a small chance of rain for Wednesday and Thursday but other than that we're looking at sunshine all week.
Holiday entertainment is topped by the annual Picnic in the Park.
It begins at Noon in Batavia’s Centenial Park on Richmond Ave.
The festivities begin with a performance by the Batavia Concert Band.
Today marks the 33rd annual Picnic in the Park sponsored by G0-art.
Your best bet for Fireworks in the area follows the Batavia Muckdogs game tonight at Dwyer Stadium. The dogs take on the Mahoning Valley Scrappers. The First pitch is at 7:05 tonight, the fireworks immediately follow the game.
25 children from Genesee County will be attending the New York State Sheriff’s Association Institute’s 2011 Summer Camp. Sheriff Gary Maha made the announcement yesterday. The Sheriff’s Summer Camp is designed to provide a recreational program combined with a sense of good citizenship.
Construction work will begin next Wednesday on route 246 north of the Perry village line and LaGrange Road in the town of Coviington, in Wyoming County. The repaving of the highway is expected to last about a week. The road will remain open, but flaggers will direct a single lane of alternating traffic through the highway work zone during work hours.
