Saratoga Springs is busy preparing for Travers weekend.

Tens of thousands of people fill the streets of downtown each year, bringing in revenue for local businesses.

It’s nothing new for the shops, bars, restaurants and hotels on Broadway.

They prepare for this weekend in advance, and after taking a hit in 2020, and scaled back crowds last year, they’re excited to welcome everyone back.

Travers Day 2021 brought in over 44,000 people to the track alone. Business owners expect that number to be much higher this year.
