Carnival in the Public Square
Tomorrow night--Wednesday, June 20, the Summer Solstice--the Public Square (a.k.a. Seventh Street Park) will be the setting for "A Night in the Park Family Carnival." The family friendly, carnival-themed event, which is sponsored by the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals, will feature tightrope walking, juggling, and plate spinning with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, hula hooping, a bounce house, a dunking tank, and more. All proceeds from the event will go toward the restoration of the Public Square.
UPDATE: Mike Molinski has just published the list of "dunkees" and the schedule for the dunk tank.

This blog takes its name from the 1850 novel by Hudson author Alice B. Neal. The original Gossips of Rivertown cast a gimlet eye on Hudson society in the mid-19th century. More than a century and a half later, the new Gossips carries on the spirit of the original, but in a different genre and with a different focus.
