On Sunday August 11 from 11am-6pm, join Hudson Rising in concert with the Beacon Sloop Club and Sloop Clearwater to celebrate the greening of Beacon with heritage ships, a farm feast, outdoor adventure, sustainable living exhibits, and music. Enjoy deck tours and boat rides aboard Sloop Clearwater and Sloop Woody Guthrie. Board the historic covered barge Pennsy 399 for an exhibit on Beacon’s prosperous past and green future, a film about the Beacon Incline Railway, and talks by the DEC on the challenges and opportunities for a fishable Hudson River. Join us for the Hudson Rising after party at Newburgh Brewery at 8:30 for a sneak preview of the documentary Hudson Rising with a talk by the Director. The 2013 Hudson Rising River Tour is made possible by a broad collaborative of green groups, farmers, forward-thinking businesses, municipalities and state agencies as well as a grant from the New York State Department of Economic Development and I LOVE NY.
