DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – Hikers and bicyclists got a few lively treats Saturday as they wound their way through Yonkers, Irvington, Dobbs Ferry and Hastings.
The eighth annual Aquefest lured Rivertown residents to the Old Croton Aqueduct trail Saturday with live music, games, food, races and more. The annual festival celebrates the 26-mile state park that stretches from Yonkers to the Croton Dam.
Saturday's events kicked off with a 3-mile run from Shonnard Terrace in Yonkers to Washington Avenue in Hastings, as well as the Rivertowns Roll, a 10-mile family bike ride. Irvington residents were treated to tours of the newly restored Tiffany Reading Room.
More than 30 Dobbs Ferry residents enjoyed live music outside the Keeper's House as the band Greetings from Anywhere played. Residents also entered a raffle to win a free bike.
