River Santa Festival – Alexandria Bay


-

Join us for our Inaugural River Santa Festival!

1000 Islands River Santa will take place December 18, 2021 from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m on Upper James Street in Alexandria Bay!
Every child deserves to believe in Santa and to have a real Christmas. Our goal this year is to reach out to every child along the river and/or every child in need from anywhere in Northern New York. When Santa arrives at the village dock in Alexandria Bay by boat with a United States Coast Guard escort he will be bringing gifts purchased with your donations and sponsorship. This committee is 100% volunteers and every dollar raised will go directly toward the purchase of gifts and the Backpack Program.
This money fed so many children in need through this wonderful program and the schools were beyond grateful for this additional help. This year with your help, we hope to put gifts in the hands of all the children again and to hopefully continue feeding as many children in need as possible through the Backpack Program.
Take a look at the video of the link listed below and you will get an idea of what we accomplished in just four days the first year. This year will again be a festival with food and drink and music on a closed Upper James Street. Hay wagon rides will be offered as well. Many merchants will be open for shopping and eating. https://youtu.be/ddOuJ7fkQvs
All children are welcome. Our goal is to furnish any child 12 and under along the river from Cape Vincent to Ogdensburg and inland with a gift.
Donations can also be made directly to the Alexandria Bay Chamber of Commerce. Memo: 2021 River Santa

The Trews at the Clayton Opera House


-

The achievements of rock ‘n’ roll heavyweights The Trews are many and mighty, highlighted by multiple radio hits drawn from seven critically acclaimed studio albums plus several EPs, a pair of live records, and a retrospective.

Among the most prolific, electrifying, and innovative bands on the planet, The Trews — singer/guitarist Colin MacDonald, guitarist John-Angus MacDonald, bassist Jack Syperek, drummer Chris Gormley, and keyboardist Jeff Heisholt — have shared stages with everyone from the Rolling Stones to Weezer, Bruce Springsteen to Rich Robinson, the latter collaboration culminating in three blazing tracks on the band’s latest, The Wanderer, cut in Nashville with the onetime Black Crowes guitarist. Amid the global pandemic, which halted both the Nashville sessions and tour plans for 2018’s epic Civilianaires album, The Trews completed The Wanderer at home in Canada with producers Derek Hoffman and Eric Ratz, emerging with their fiercest and most accomplished set of songs to date, and a heck of backstory to boot.
