Weather forecasts for rain prompted fundraisers for two popular Hudson Valley events near Beacon to push to their rain dates of Sunday: the Annual Butterfly Festival, and the River Pool at Beacon's Annual Great Newburgh to Beacon Swim.
This isn't the first time this year a major event has pushed to its rain date. The Stiletto Stampede got wet feet the day before their event and moved theirs weeks ago to a new date. Every Friday at 1pm, A Little Beacon Blog sends out our Happening This Weekend email, which highlights the goings on for the weekend, as complied here in our Things To Do In Beacon Guides, which includes the Annual Event Guide. Luckily we received word of the movings of these dates before that email went out! Phew.
If you're not on that email yet, you can get hooked in here, for an easy list you can refer to all weekend.
