What’s Up Peekskill? Farmer’s Market is back.

Politics can be embarrassing or fun. Depends on which side of the camera lens you’re on! Anyway… We got the Farmer’s Market back in action on Saturday, and Open Studios both Saturday and Sunday, along with a peppering of musical good times. So get downtown and P-rock!

What’s Up Peekskill? The Force! But not your pants…

Happy Star Wars Day everyone. May the Forth (Force?) be with you. And also with your pants, that you will take off on Friday. Because you will bare it all on Saturday when you go a-gardening. It’s also Cinqo de Mayo on Friday, whether you have your pants on or not. But it’s all okay, because we can laugh it all off (pun intended) on Sunday. Enjoy. You’re welcome. Rock on, Peekskill!

What’s Up Peekskill?

Are you tired of the rain? Is the cold getting into your bones? Is your skin dry and cracking? Then let Dr. Peekskill help you out. Come downtown for a benefit at the Paramount to help pay for the Peekskill Fire Department’s 4th of July fireworks. Come to the Hat Factory for wine tasting and pottery sale to benefit the Peekskill Education Fund. Donate toys at the Peekskill Coffee House for the Love Holds Life Children’s Cancer Foundation. There’s also a new record store. Feel better yet? Good. Then the doctor orders you to do a little rehab with good old drinking and live music, and even some swing dancing! Come on and rock, Peekskill.
