(PLATTSBURGH- Monday July 31st 2023) - The Parks Come Alive! event series is back on Thursday August 10th from 4:30-7:30PM at South Acres Park. The event will feature local food, drinks, music and activities for kids- all set in Plattsburgh’s city parks.

On Thursday August 10th from 4:30-7:30PM, head to South Acres park to listen to local  musicians Austin and the In Laws! Old Soul Design Shop will be hosting the event’s beer garden (21+) and showcasing local brews from our community.

Over 20 local organizations, such as Adirondack Helping Hands, the Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration and the Plattsburgh YMCA will be at the event providing fun games and activities for kids.


Courtney Meisenheimer, Community Engagement Coordinator says “It’s been a rainy summer thus far, but we are optimistic that the sun will shine on Thursday and we can gather together as a community in our local parks!”.
