Pleasant Valley Weekend (Aired on September 9 and September 10, 2017)

Pleasant Valley Weekend (Aired on September 9 and 10, 2017)
For many years, the Town of Pleasant Valley has celebrated itself as a
community on a weekend in September. Recently the celebrations, known as
“Pleasant Valley Weekend,” have been better than ever. Pleasant Valley
Rotarian Carol Campbell revitalized the event when she was Town Supervisor in
2015, asking singer Johnny Dell to help get it organized. In this program
RadioRotary interviews Ms. Campbell and Mr. Dell about the 2017 Pleasant
Valley Weekend, which features three separate parades, many food and information booths at Cady Field (along Wappingers Creek just behind Town Hall), live music and dance, and a fireworks finale on Sunday. The Friday evening parade is vintage cars, the Saturday parade consists of over a hundred
motorcycles, and on Sunday there is a traditional parade with fire engines, winners of the vintage car show, many marching groups, and a marching band. It is a great all-American event.
