Riverfront Ferris Wheel Rolls Into Memorial Park for the
Great Nyack Get-Together on September 16th
Where can you find a riverfront Ferris wheel, a Human Foosball game, an iron pour, great food and live music? All that and more will be part of the first annual Great Nyack Get-Together on September 16, 2017, from noon to 6:00pm, in Nyack’s Memorial Park on the Hudson River.
The Great Nyack Get-Together is a free community event to celebrate The Nyacks and neighboring towns and villages, and raise awareness of the range of services provided by the groups and individuals that make up the fabric of our community.
Highlights of the afternoon include wide-ranging fun for the entire family:
● Ferris Wheel overlooking the Hudson River (small fee to ride) ● Human Foosball game (similar to this one) (sponsored by Christopher Street Financial) ● Iron pour with Manhattan Iron Project (sponsored by Ellis/Sotheby’s Real Estate)
● Two stages with live music
Non-profit organizations serving the community, health and legal services, local businesses and school groups will all be on hand with information and answers to your questions as well as a fun activity – photos, face painting, crafts, games, and much more!

“We wanted a day to showcase the amazing things our non-profits do for the community,” said Melody Partrick, Village of Nyack Recreation Director and co-chair of the event. Co-chair Kim Cross, Executive Director of Nyack Center, added, “the Great Nyack Get-Together is different from anything that’s happened before in Nyack. It’s not a street fair, it's not a carnival, but it something really fun in between. We look forward to making this an annual event.”
