Pokémon Go Event in Rochester, NY


Genesee Country Village & Museum has been invaded by the Pokémon Go! characters. They are inviting all Pokémon fans to come over on July 29 between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. to catch 'em all. They are calling a Pokémon roundup and they want you to be there. Stroll around the museum and connect with two gymnasiums and seven PokeStops. The cost is only $5 per person for this exciting event. This will be on the grounds of the museum only, as the only buildings that will be open will be the restaurant for a bite to eat and the gift shop. For more details and to purchase tickets visit the Genesee Country Village & Museum website. An interactive map is available on the GCV website. Below are just some of the places that you should search for those cute Pokémon Go! scalawags.
