First Friday Poughkeepsie Wants You To Rock Out In July
‘American Rock’ to feature car show, touch-a-truck and more… Food-Music-Art
On Friday, July 6, from 5-8:30pm, join us for First Friday Poughkeepsie’s American Rock themed celebration with a car show, touch-a-truck and more at 52-68 Crannell Street, Poughkeepsie, N.Y. (lot behind The Chance and DC Indoor Golf).
First Friday Poughkeepsie American Rock will feature a car show for all classes- modern or classic, stock or modified, domestic or import – with best of show prizes to include gift cards to local auto detailers, car washes and more. Registration is first-come, first serve, on event day, from 5-7:30pm. Motorcycles are also welcome!
In typical First Friday Poughkeepsie ‘Food-Music-Art’ fashion, American Rock will also feature the best food Poughkeepsie has to offer, live bands from around the Hudson Valley and work from local artists.
Entertainment includes live music by Ceesar Classic Rock & Roll Show, Maria Grispin, Ian Flanigan and Ill Harmonics. First Friday MC Michelle Barone-Lepore and DJ Smitty will keep the crowd entertained before and after performances. And there’s plenty for the kids, including a bounce house, face painters, and touch-a-truck.
First Friday Poughkeepsie is excited to announce the three amazing local charitable organizations for July: Vet 2 Vet, Family Services, and The New Deal Creative Art Center. Proceeds from the Durant’s Dunk Tank, which will once again feature local celebrities, and the Hudson Valley Young Professionals Cornhole Tournament will go to benefit these great charities.
