What’s Up Peekskill? Is it me, or is it finally getting warm?

Okay, Peekskill, there’s nothing special going on. It’s not the first day of spring. It’s not mother’s day. It’s not the 5th. Not nothing. Just a simple weekend in May with warmer weather. But, since Peekskill Rocks, we can’t just let it be! So get off your lazy butts and come downtown where we got tons of live music, story telling, a film festival, an art opening, wine tasting, swing dancing, farmer’s market and more! Just another simple weekend in Peekskill!

Peekskill Brewery will be hosting a meetup after the Sweeps in Peekskill.  For more information on Brewery partners, sponsorship or volunteer information and all Sweep project sites check out Riverkeeper’s Sweep page.
