4th of July on the Banks of the Hudson River- Barbeque, Music, etc.

  • Jul 4, 2011 · 12:00 PM
  • Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park

 DOGS ARE ALLOWED ON A SHORT.

I AM COLLECTING $3.00 A PERSON TO COVER PAPER GOODS.  WE ARE ALSO TAKING ADDITION MONEY TO GIVE DOBBS FERRYS FIREWORK FUND.....PLEASE SUPPORT THE VILLAGE AND ALL THEY DO. 

IF YOU BRING A CHECK MAKE IT PAYABLE TO THE VILLAGE OF DOBBS FERRY.

For the past three years, we have joined by over 120 friends from several different Meet Up Groups. If you want to help plan let me know, check out the photos from past three year. Check out the Photos... We won the Dance contest!

Kayak or Canoe not required!! Let's celebrate the Fourth of July by gathering with old friends and new with a potluck picnic and bbq on Monday from 12pm til Dark. Bring your favorite picnic foods - salads, burgers, dogs, chicken, dessert, etc, with enough to go around. We'll have charcoal & grills for cooking, so you can bring uncooked food, just put labels on any utensils and containers so you get your stuff back at the end of the day! :)

As we get closer to the date I will be asking everyone to RSVP with what they are going to bring so we don't have 5 bowls of potato salad and no burgers! I?m also asking everyone to pitch in $3 for paper goods, cups, utensils, ice, charcoal, etc = please pay at the park. I"ll pick up this stuff prior to the picnic.

Please bring your own beer, soda, wine, mixed drinks...but we'll have to keep our alcohol in plastic cups and make our mixed drinks before arriving (please put in thermos or other plastic containers) - park policy. If folks have a volleyball net, or frisbee, or softball/mitts/bats/
balls, bring 'em! we'll set up an impromptu game or three.. just RSVP with what you're bringing.

comments? questions? just email me!

    Thanks for my rousing welcome back from my river run! I was a little embarrassed, but it was great. I'd like a welcome like that after every paddle. I felt like Charles Lindbergh after his Atlantic crossing.
