Kentucky Derby Viewing Party

Craft Tap House
701 Main Street, East Aurora

Just one of the many reasons we need to rebuild - the Babcock Boys & Girls Club joining us for Spring Break camp! Some of these kids had never been around horses before. All of them did great and everyone, including the horses, had a great time!
