Newburgh Illuminated returned to the Hudson Valley last Saturday and did not disappoint. In its sixth year running, the festival brought out musicians, dancers, a variety of vendors and lots of people.
It’s so encouraging to see the community’s commitment to revitalize and grow Newburgh. So often we see the revitalization of areas coming from outsiders and I love that that so much of the rebuilding is coming from locals who are not only financially but emotionally invested in the city. There are lots of new independent stores popping up and it was great to explore them.
Here are some shots from the day.
