Community Festival at Upper Landing Park
Upper Landing Park in Poughkeepsie will house a day of family fun on Saturday, Aug. 9. The Dyson Foundation is sponsoring the free festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to thank the community for its support of the new riverside park's development.
The Upper Landing Park Community Celebration will feature non-stop entertainment, including Sonando's 10 piece salsa band, Mariachi Flor de Toloache, Spirit of Unity Band, Percussion Orchestra of Kingston, Story Laurie, Bindlestiff Family Cirkus and more. Food vendors, face painting, stilt-walkers, a juggler and a unicyclist will also be on site.
Limited free parking will be available at the Metro North parking lot.
Upper Landing Park, which is located at 83 North Water Street, opened in November 2013. The park will serve as the access site for the Walkway Over the Hudson's new elevator when it opens to the public.
