What’s Up Peekskill?

Wine on a boat?
Karaokoe?
Ska?
Swing band?
Beer Garden?
Saving the environment?
Fat-bottomed girls?
Donovan?

If you said “yes” to any of these, you had better get your bottom downtown and get it on. Peekskill is saying “yes” to it all this weekend. Why? ‘Cause Peekskill rocks!
