Dinner & a Narrated Cruise Aboard the Evening Star
Wednesday 6 August, 2014 5:30–8:30 pm
Riverfront Green, 30 Hudson Avenue, Peekskill, NY
Join the National Maritime Historical Society and the crew of the Evening Star as we set sail from Peekskill Riverfront Green for a three-hour cruise on the Hudson River. Enjoy the dramatic beauty and rich history of the Hudson Highlands as noted local historian and lecturer Scott Craven narrates.
The Evening Star is a former USCG Buoy Tender, built for the Coast Guard in Harvery, Louisiana, in 1966. After being decommissioned it was converted in 1999 to a 34-passenger tour boat and operated on the Erie Canal for more than 10 years providing history trips for school children and public tours at local canal festivals. Since 2011, local residents and visitors have enjoyed the Hudson scenery from its canopy-covered open deck.
Places on this exclusive Hudson River cruise are limited! Cost per person is $45 and includes a box supper, a glass of wine or beer, and soft drinks. Ample free parking is available. Please remember to bring a light sweater or jacket for a cooler evening, and surely don’t forget your camera or binoculars!
