Local astronomy enthusiast Ephemer ADK will be on site sharing information about the eclipse and views of the sky from his telescope. More activities to be announced in the coming weeks!


“We look forward to hosting our community and those who have traveled from out of town at our City Beach. We hope that those who are visiting for the first time to Plattsburgh return back this summer and in the future to enjoy the many amenities, sites and activities our city and region have to offer. We encourage local businesses and restaurants to be open to welcome the many newcomers to our City!” says Courtney Meisenheimer, Director of Community Development.
