What’s Up Peekskill? Hippiefest!

What up P-Rockers? Hippies, karaoke, Lego, wine tasting. More stormy weather. If you can’t rock out with wine and legos and hippies and karaoke and thunder and lightening then you really need to get out more! Good thing Peekskill delivers this weekend!

What’s Up Peekskill? It’s so muggy!


Muggy and getting hotter. Yuck, who comes up with this weather? Well, if you wanna beat the humugiddy, there’s no better way than to enjoy it by rockin’ out. We have the Hudson Valley Expo at the river front this weekend! We got some park cleanups to make Peekskill prettier, and of course, the usual live music around town. So if you got it, shake it!
