Fireworks, Music at End of Summer Bash Wednesday in Peekskill

We are part of The Trust Project


Inclement weather may have washed out the Hudson Valley Exposition in Peekskill earlier this month, but the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a replacement event for residents to enjoy.

On Wednesday, August 22, from 4 to 9:30 p.m., the End of the Summer Bash will take place at Peekskill’s Riverfront Green, with food from local restaurants and food companies, live music and fireworks. There is no admission charge.

“We wanted to do something positive for the citizens of the city and that’s why this fireworks display was customized for the event,” Deb Milone, executive director of the chamber, told the Peekskill Common Council last week.

The Entertainment Schedule is: Bates- 4:20-5:25 p.m.; Pluck & Rail- 5:40-6:40 p.m.; Chip Taylor- 6:50-7:55 p.m.; Blue Confusion- 8:10-9 p.m.; Fireworks 9 p.m.; Blue Confusion- 9:20-9:30 p.m.

Food for purchase will be provided by Gaetano’s Grille; Octavio’s Food Wagon and catering; Hudson Corn & Lemonade; The Hudson Creamery; Touch Of Class Caribbean Fusion Cuisine; Savannah & Company/ Little Sorrento; and G&H Caribbean.
