Kite at WHQSoaring, swirling, kites of all kinds will bob and weave as they dance in the wind at Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site during Kites Over the Hudson, on Saturday, September 20th, 2 PM to 4 PM.

Free kites will be given to the first 150 children 15 and under during this Hudson River Ramble event.

Newburgh gets Retro! We wandered into Newburgh Brewery and stumbled across the Swing Shift Orchestra one Thursday..so, we figured, stop stumbling, and start dancing! Newburgh Needs Swing Dance lessons and we’ve now got ’em! Then, we can go have a few beers, loosen up, and look good practicing at our brewery.

No partner or experience needed. Each 1 1/2 workshop creates and builds your skills in basic swing dance. Take one and you’ll be able to dance at any event. Take two and you’ll increase your skills and repertoire and be able to dance even better!
