Nine eateries in downtown Babylon are participating in a virtual restaurant crawl on Saturday, June 6.

Event organizers say its a great way to patronize people’s favorite places in a safe manner during the pandemic.

“We’ve seen some other towns doing these virtual crawls and thought it would be a really fun idea to help out our restaurants and as a fun option for people on the weekends,” said Babylon Village chamber president, Kelly Pekcholdt. “If this first one is successful, we hope to continue them.”
