First things first—due to the several hours of thunderstorms predicted for this evening, as a matter of safety, we have decided to cancel tonight’s concert featuring Marc Berger and Ride. We are disappointed, but hopeful that Marc and his band can join us for a concert sometime in September.
We had a soggy Friday night last week (with thankfully no thunder or lightning!) when DJ Catch1 played the Ossining waterfront. We had a great turnout at Louis Engel Park and even though it started to rain pretty heavily about halfway through, many of us stayed (glowsticks and all) and danced anyway-- what a phenomenal workout!
The MC (Ossining’s own Hopeton Lemon) and his crew kept it upbeat and positive (we even danced to “Umbrella”, “It’s Raining Men” and other appropriately themed tunes) and we can’t wait to have them back for another concert. Thanks to everyone who joined us for this awesome Party in the Park!
However, in the meantime, I hope you will join us NEXT Friday (August 25th) for Cuboricua, an incredible seven-piece band specializing in salsa, Cuban and Dominican music. This will be another great opportunity to show us what you're made of on the dance floor! The fun starts at 7PM, looking forward to seeing you there.
Due to the heavy rain predicted for this evening, tonight's concert featuring Marc Berger & Ride has been canceled. We are hoping to move this show to another date in September.
Thank you for understanding, and stay safe out there!
I hope you have your dancing shoes on, because tonight is the night-- DJ Catch1 will be hitting the Louis Engel Waterfront stage tonight at 7PM for a DJ dance party with us. You may know DJ Catch1 as Ossining's own Hopeton Lemon, who has quickly become one of Westchester's premiere entertainers. We promise, this is a waterfront concert you will not want to miss-- bring your family and friends down for a great night and "catch" the sunset with us! The Gyro Uno truck will be on site slinging delicious gyros, salads and kebabs, so if you don't have time to pack a dinner, bring a few dollars and make a night of it.
Also, be sure to mark your calendar for next Friday, August 18th, when Marc Berger & Ride will be returning to our Summer Concert Series for an evening of soulful guitar tunes (think Bob Dylan-style blues) with a nod to the American West. These guys got a great turnout last time and we look forward to seeing them again this summer.
The weather is looking great for tonight's Ossining Fire Department Parade-- this is an event that our community looks forward to each and every year, and I'm sure our engines will be looking mighty fine. The parade steps off from Roosevelt Square at 7PM and winds down Croton Avenue to the waterfront-- be sure to wave at our emergency responders who do such an incredible job keeping us safe year round (I hear Chief Gio will be helping to represent the Ossining Police tonight, so keep your eyes peeled for him riding with the OPD!) The parade will make traveling around Ossining tough for a few hours-- traffic will be restricted along Route 9 and Croton Avenue/ Main Street between 5PM and 8PM, so if you don't plan to watch from the sidelines, please plan your travels accordingly. And for everyone else, have a great time!
Our usual Friday night concert will be moved to Saturday this week because of the Parade, so I hope you will come down tomorrow night (Saturday, August 5th) and spend your evening with The Mike Risko Band, who will be taking the stage at Louis Engel Park at 7PM. We hear DJ Johnny G will also be in the house spinning tunes at some point, so it is sure to be a great evening.
The Gyro Uno food truck and Good Choice Kitchen will also be there and ready to serve you, so don't forget to bring a few bucks (or a picnic) and make a night of it on the waterfront. Word to the wise-- Laurie (the owner of Good Choice) made a great suggestion-- if you know you are coming down to the concert and what you'd like to eat, you can place an order online and she will bring it down with her! Just make sure you put a note on the order in the "Special Request" box so she knows to meet you at Engel Park!
