Free Summer Events on the Hudson
The thermometer is rising and the local towns are inviting residents to enjoy activities throughout the summer months.
Whether singing along to Mama Mia in the park, competing in the Sinatra Idol contest, or watching open-air Shakespeare, there is something for everyone.
Movies at Pier A Park
Hoboken hosts free movies every Wednesday night in Pier A Park, First Street and Sinatra Drive, by the Hoboken Terminal.
The June schedule includes Doubt on June 17 and Man on Wire on June 24. July kicks off with Get Smart on July 8.
The movies begin at 9 p.m. in June and July and 8:30 in August, according to Hoboken Cultural Affairs Coordinator Geraldine Fallo.
The huge movie screen is set up at the end of Pier A, so movie-goers are treated to New York City skyline views from the grass of the park. Concession stands are on hand and guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for their viewing convenience.
Shows will be cancelled due to heavy rain, Fallo said, and the schedule of viewings is subject to change.
