hot summer day

Over Fourth of July weekend last year, Alexa Anderson, 13, and her brother, Brayden Anderson, 8, were swimming near a private dock in the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri when they started to scream. By the time the siblings were pulled from the lake, they were unresponsive.

Peppermint Days Festival Lyons NY

If you’re in Central New York this weekend, join us at the Peppermint Days Festival in Lyons NY.  From Thursday evening July 16th right through Sunday July 19th 2015.

From kiddie parades to band concerts, vendors in the park and lots of food choices, a car show, parade and “Thunder over the Erie” reported to be one of the largest fireworks displays in upstate NY.

Located at mile 220 on the Canal you will want to spend some time in Lyon’s.  In 2014 Lyon’s hosted boaters from 34 states, Canada and visitors from 4 countries outside of North America.

Lyons is the capital of Wayne County.  It was once considered the Peppermint Oil capital of the world.  The village is filled with historical buildings and architecture.  Six properties within the village are listed on the NYS and National Register of Historic Places. It is also a “Main Street USA” designated village.

As is the case with many communities along the canal Lyons opens its doors to boaters.  There are docking opportunities on both the North and South sides of the Canal with electric on both sides.  Docking, electric, water, showers and Wi-Fi are all free.  The bath rooms are located just up the stairs on the north wall at the firehouse.

Jun 28 2015

With the fourth of July upon us there are lots of events centered on the waterfronts of New York State.  A couple of our favorites at the Tall Ships at Greenport and the Steamboat rally in Waterford.

As part of the Tall Ships Challenge Atlantic Coast 2015 the ships will be in Greenport as part of a four day festival from July 4th- 7th.  As always there are lots of activities to do in Greenport.  On the waterfront Mitchell Park will be bustling with special events and activities to entertain visitors all weekend long.  Restaurants and merchants will offer an assortment of great food and beverages.  Live music will be playing on stages and street performers will be displaying their many talents throughout the village streets and harbor front.  Take part in games at the nearby carnival, ride the antique carousel and enjoy the fireworks
