Happening This Weekend - 7/19/2019

So. Hot. But beautiful! Here's your Adventure Day Trip in Beacon: Bike, walk or drive down to the River Pool at Beacon. It's a circle of benches with a net bottom - set right in the Hudson. Great for kids and adults who want to cool off when down at Pete and Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park. The pool's biggest fundraiser that keeps it free and staffed with lifeguards is this weekend, so see below in our Marathons section for details. Meanwhile, if you're too hot, or see someone who is overheating, take you or them to one of Beacon's cooling centers. Days and times are here.
Sponsored by Antalek & Moore for car insurance.
