I've been a resident of Newburgh for a little over two years now, and I can tell you it has a ton to offer, especially along the riverfront where a number of great small businesses have set up shop. It's those same businesses who have decided to come together to invite you to see what Newburgh is all about during "Downtown Newburgh Nights" every Friday night in October.

The weekly event will run from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m. and, according to the Flutter Newburgh Facebook page, will not only feature an opportunity to explore the businesses that sell everything from clothing to home decor to all-natural handmade soaps and lotions, but also "live music, food trucks, late night shopping, pop-ups, plus lots of fun additions to Downtown Newburgh."

If it's been awhile since you strolled through downtown Newburgh, or you've never been for whatever reason, these nights will be the perfect opportunity to see and enjoy what those of us who live there have had the pleasure of experiencing for years.
