Cancelled due to weather — program moved to Sept 13
Music lovers unite! Rotary Park is the place to be this Friday night, Sept 13 as we present West Side Story, sponsored by The Rotary Club of Kingston and the Sunshine Rotary Club. It’s a grown up night so keep the little ones at home, but teens with parents or adult guardians are more than welcome. Come sing along with the Jets and the Sharks to a classic American musical at 8:30pm! Come early for the The Gold Hope Duo beginning at 7:30pm: Stripped down upbeat Rhythm & Blues, Country, folk and a pinch of Rockabilly, The Gold Hope Duo is a joint effort between front-persons Lara Hope and Matt “The Knife” Goldpaugh. Lara strums the guitar while Matt slaps the Upright Bass or picks the 5 String Banjo. They share percussion duties with their fast feet and live by the motto “If you can’t do it, kazoo it!” Their powerful voices intertwine, harmonize and amaze. A duo sure to make you dance, laugh, drink and grab your partner’s behind. They’re made of fun! Check them out at http://thegoldhopeduo.com/
Rotary Park is another hidden gem of the Kingston Park system. Located across from Kingston Point Beach on Deleware Ave. you will find plenty of parking on-street or in the adjacent parking lot. The Kingston Trolley will also be doing a free shuttle loop across the city if you prefer public transportation. The land of Kingston Point Park has a long and intriguing history, beginning in 1897, Kingston Point has been a “must see” for visitors for over 100 years, with its beautiful views of the Hudson River, Rhinecliff and the surrounding natural areas, Kingston Point Park is an oasis in our urban city. Over the years, Kingston Point has morphed from it’s early days as an amusement park to a place of solitude and beauty. The Kingston Rotary Club led the way in the 1980′s to restore this beautiful park in order to provide a new generation of visitors with a enjoyable visit. Kingston Point has over 87 acres of open space and Kingston recently renamed a 2 acre portion of the park as Rotary Park at Kingston Point in honor of the Kingston Rotary’s ongoing commitment to the park.
We’ll see YOU at the Movies!
