BATAVIA – Genesee Community College’s fourth annual homecoming celebration – called “There’s No Place Like GCC” – begins at 6 p.m. Friday at the Batavia campus with the promise of music, classic cars and soccer matches.

Since the college’s first commencement in the late 1960s, GCC – with six satellite locations – counts more than 18,000 alumni, most of them living and working in Western New York.

The event concludes Saturday evening after a day with classic cars, trucks and bikes, rock ’n’ roll bands and a 5 p.m. induction ceremony for the GCC Athletic Hall of Fame.

A reunion mixer at 7 p.m. Saturday will be held in downtown Batavia with the Batavia Rotary Club’s annual Oktober Brew Fest, featuring a German band and a wine and beer tasting.
