"Summer On the Hudson (SOH), one of New York City’s largest free summer festivals, now in its Tenth Anniversary Season, goes into high gear in July at Riverside Park South with Movies Under the Stars, the Children’s Performance Series, the pop-music Acoustic Sundays, and sports and recreation for the whole family. The six-month series, running through October 10, is an annual summer arts and cultural festival in Riverside Park South, West 59th Street to West 72nd Street at the Hudson River, presented by The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

The 2010 Festival once again features a wealth of free events for the entire family. This year’s Movies Under the Stars (July 7-August 11) are themed Tall Tales, and include the larger-than-life Pan’s Labyrinth, Stranger Than Fiction and Neverending Story; the Sunday evening Acoustic Sundays (July 11-August 15,) features the SOH debuts of Grammy-nominated Michael Powers Frequency and Meta and the Cornerstones’ African pop and reggae; the Children’s Performance Series, Thursday mornings July 8 to August 12, entertains with Improv4Kids, Robbi K, Bindlestiff’s Swashbuckling Cirkus and much more. The ever-popular kayaking, every Saturday and Sunday through October 10, includes free instruction; there is health and fitness with yoga, pilates and soccer and wee basketball for tots.

Food and drink is for sale at the park’s on-site Pier I CafĂ©, where patrons can sit and watch the action.

All events are FREE to the public
