May the Weekend be Enjoyed with CNY Events

This first weekend of May presents a bouquet of CNY events and activities ranging from art exhibits, creek floating, live music and much more.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! It’s time to geek out, you upstate New Yorkers. The reason for that is it’s free comic book day this Saturday. It’s also a new month, new weather, new outlook and a new weekend for more CNY events and activities.

It may be a cooler weekend ahead, but a little bit of Sunday snow never put a damper on anyone’s weekend. Creekfloats and crawls, upstanding plays and stand-up comedy, art and music showcases, plus much more to look forward to.
