2019 Fireworks Cruise

July 7, 2019
7:30-10:30 PM.

Pride Of The Hudson
90 Front St
Newburgh, NY

On Sunday, July 7th, the Newburgh Historical Society took its guests down through the beautiful Hudson Highlands aboard the Pride of the Hudson to enjoy the annual West Point fireworks show. (The cruise was moved from Saturday to Sunday after West Point rescheduled the concert and fireworks due to a questionable weather forecast.) The West Point Band played its Independence Day concert on the bluff above the river - the sound was transmitted over the boat's public address system. We sailed past the concert and  anchored just below Trophy Point, where the fireworks began exploding about 9:30 pm. It was a perfect evening, pleasantly warm and clear. And the fireworks were terrific. (Thanks to guess Lynn Fern form some of the photos below.)
