Tioga Downs to Host Fun-Filled Labor Day Events


Tioga Downs Announces Events for Upcoming Holiday Weekend

Nichols, N.Y. – August 31, 2017 – Tioga Downs is gearing up for its Labor Day festivities, which are packed with fun for the entire family.

Quality racing will take place throughout the weekend, with an additional special race day on Labor Day Monday, September 4. Live racing will run from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The highly anticipated Million Dollar Ball Drop will take place during Monday’s races. Contest entry was open to contestants from June 2 to August 20. For this contest, there is a possible prize of $1 million! 500 numbered golf balls will be dropped from the top of a fire truck ladder onto a target area in the infield of the racetrack. The top 25 golf balls dropped closest to target will win prizes up to $5000. Prior to the ball drop, Odds On Promotions will place one randomly generated number ranging from 1 to 500 into a sealed envelope. If the ball dropped closest to the target hole is that same pre-selected number in the sealed envelope, the guest will win $1,000,000.00 to be paid out over 40 years. 

Also on Monday, Tioga Downs will be hosting a Family Fun Day at the races. The theme for this free event will be Carnival Game Day. Sponsored by Bobby K Entertainment, there will be no charge for admission, and no tickets are necessary to enjoy the attractions.
