With adventures to suit every budget, Gettysburg and Adams County businesses offer plenty of packages to help visitors create their dream vacations.
St. Francis Xavier Catholic School will be holding its biennial Night at the Races event. Night at the Races is an event where the fun and excitement of thoroughbred horse racing is delivered to you in the form of high quality, professional video, and emceed live at the event. Join the excitement of cheering your favorites on to the finish line! Attendees bet on their favorites of each race to win with payoffs. Bets are made in $2 increments. The racing lineup includes 10 races with 10 horses each, followed by an 11th auction race. Small games of chance and a 50/50 raffle will be available throughout the evening.
Tickets are $20 per person (adults only) and include admission to the event, dinner and refreshments. This year the event will be catered by a local BBQ joint. We have had a GREAT response from local businesses interested in supporting our fundraiser with donations of door prizes and raffle prizes. Some of them include Mason Dixon Distillery, The Ugly Mug Café and Gettysburg Performance Gym.
Doors open at 5:30 pm, Dinner at 6 pm, followed by races starting at 7 pm.
