Sunset Cocktail Cruise Plus Fireworks! Saturday, July 13 7:00pm-10:00pm


The Friends of the Hudson Area Library announce a bonus to the Sunset Cocktail Cruise on the Hudson on Saturday, July 13th. Experience and enjoy first hand, the Athens Fireworks that evening from on board the “Spirit of the Hudson” right on the river!

In order to accommodate this new change, the cruise will now depart at 7:00 pm, one hour later than originally planned, with boarding set to begin at 6:30. All else remains the same—cocktails (cash bar), hors d’oeuvres, live jazz and magnificent views of the sunset on the Hudson. We will return to the dock in Hudson around 10pm.

Also featured will be raffle and door prizes, sold separately.

Tickets are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets will be sold at the Hudson Area Library at $50 per person, or $60 at the dock that evening. 

For more information or to reserve tickets, call 518.828.1792. Or stop by the Library at 400 State Street and get your tickets today!
