The Town of Halfmoon and City of Mechanicville are holding a Hudson
River Paddle and Festival to highlight the new, car-top boating access
in each community. The 4.5 mile paddle will begin at the Mechanicville
City Dock. Canoes and kayaks will access the Hudson River by means of
the canoe/kayak launch/dock installed at the City Dock in 2011. Paddlers
will “lock-through” Lock #2 and complete their trip at Lighthouse Park
in the Town of Halfmoon, which opened fall 2011. Upon arriving at
Lighthouse Park, the paddlers will join other community members for
refreshments and family activities. Family activities such as:
picnicking, face painting, informational displays and games for children
will be available at Lighthouse Park in Halfmoon. Musical entertainment
in the acoustical and/or bluegrass genre will be part of the festivities
at Lighthouse Park. A barbeque and other refreshments will be provided
at Lighthouse Park.
