  • Food, music, crafts and more are on tap for Saturday’s Bath Community Expo in downtown Bath.
    The event will kick off with a performance by the Bath Haverling Big Blue Band at 9:30 a.m. in Pulteney Square East, to be followed at 10 a.m. by the Bathtub Races down Liberty Street, an annual tradition.
    Throughout the day in Pulteney Park, there will be craft vendors and a farmer’s market, along with the annual Bath Lumberjack Competition, presented by the New York State Lumberjack Association.
    There will also be Mason’s BBQ chicken and other food and drinks by the Central Steuben Chamber of Commerce.
    Capping the day off, the Meads Creek Band will perform from 6-8 p.m.
    For more details, call the Chamber of Commerce at 776-7122.
    Also this weekend in Bath, there will be a free walking tour led by Kirk House of the Steuben County Historical Society at 4 p.m. Friday starting at the Magee House, 1 Conhocton St.
    House will discuss the history of downtown Bath and how it was designed by founding father Charles Williamson. “Bath has broad straight boulevards and green open squares, just like Paris and Washington. But Bath had them BEFORE Paris and Washington did,” House says.
    For details, call 776-9930.
