Come on down to the Beacon Sloop Club fall Pumpkin Festival on October 14, 2012 12 noon—5pm at the Beacon Waterfront. Admission is free.
The annual Pumpkin Festival helps raise funds for the upkeep of the club's flagship, The Woody Guthrie, and for their sailing and educational programs. During the festival, volunteer Captains and crews will be organizing free public sails aboard the Woody, a wooden replica of a gaff-rigged Hudson River ferry sloop. Guests may sign up at Beacon Sloop Club Booth during the festival.
The afternoon will have an abundance of fresh-picked local grown Hudson Valley pumpkins of all sizes and shapes. Enjoy fresh-baked pumpkin pies, hot and cold apple cider, delicious pumpkin soup, chili and other fall treats. The Beacon Farmers' Market will have local vegetables, breads, eggs, cheeses, wine, flowers, and apples for sale and a wide variety of food and crafts from local vendors will be available.
