Since the weather was bone chilling this past weekend, we had to move the date of our annual Paddy on the River.  That is a good thing because now the St. Patrick's Day celebration can continue even after St. Patrick's Day.  And if we are lucky, the weather will be much warmer.

The new date is March 25.  Everything else is the same.  It's from noon – 5 pm at Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie.  Lots of great beer, live music with The Mighty Ploughboys and ,and Ireland the Band, vendors with cool Irish memorabilia.  And all on the shores of the beautiful Hudson River.   You can park at the train station or you can even walk across the Walkway Over the Hudson from the Highland side and take the elevator right down to the Paddy On The River.  If you are coming from lower Dutchess County, you can hop right on a train and head north to Poughkeepsie.

Don't forget the new date is March 25.   For more information and to get tickets, visit
