Plattsburgh, NY — After a rainy start Thursday, skies cleared and residents gathered at South Acres Park for the final night of the Parks Come Alive series.

The event was announced in May as a way to celebrate the summer and what the local parks have to offer. Residents can grab food from food trucks, play games like oversized Connect 4, enjoy live music, or get a beer from a local brewery at the beer garden.

Plattsburgh City Mayor Chris Rosenquest said the event helps promote the city’s parks.

“Highlighting some of our parks, that was really a lot of this effort as well as highlighting some of the projects we’re working on with the park renewal project,” Rosenquest said, “as well as engaging with the community on what kinds of improvements we should be making.”’

Rosenquest says the city plans on bringing the event back next year, possibly at different parks in the area to continue highlighting what the city has to offer.
