OurHudson Launches Barge Tour 2011 – Clearwater’s Pumpkin Sail to Visit Hudson Valley Rivertowns

  |   September 30, 2011  |  Comment

Our Hudson’s Barge Tour 2011 will launch its traveling exhibition scheduled to tour the Hudson Valley this fall¬† visiting several Hudson rivertowns. Pennsylvania Railroad Barge #399, an artifact of a lost industrial era, has been remade as a floating town hall, exhibition space, and movie theater. The public is invited to tour the barge exhibition to see how citizens of the Hudson Valley envision restoring economic vitality to our riverfront towns, while improving the health of the river and protecting our valley’s world-renowned scenic beauty.

Clearwater is excited to announce the return of Pumpkin Sail to the Hudson Valley with dockside events taking place through the month of October. The public is invited to join Clearwater at several Hudson River waterfronts for a celebration of harvest time and a tribute to the river communities that includes food, music, history, storytelling, Hudson River wildlife and pumpkin-related activities. Sloop tours and dockside programs are free. Public Sails are 2 hours; $35 for members, $50 for non-members, and $15 for children 12 and under. Sail reservations are available through www.clearwater.org.

Clearwater is proud to support Our Hudson’s Barge Tour 2011 and will welcome the barge at two of the Pumpkin Sail venues – on October 2 in Poughkeepsie, NY, and on October 10 in Hudson, NY.
