BATAVIA – The Genesee County Chamber of Commerce will take over a traditional springtime tradition that a younger organization began in the 1950s.

The Chamber’s first Home Show will be held March 28-30 in the Falleti Ice Arena on Evans Street near downtown Batavia. Already two-thirds of 80 vendor booths have been taken. The arena has ample parking.

The Batavia Area Jaycees ran a Better Homes Show for decades but gave it up last year because of declining membership and the demands on members’ time. It was often held at Batavia Downs’ spacious grandstand.
