Summer can be a busy time for Soldiers and Families, as it is the premier time to enjoy the outdoors in the North Country. As the season winds down, Soldiers and Families can enjoy the end of summer with the Fort Drum Rides the River event Aug. 28 in Clayton.
This will be the third year that Fort Drum Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation has partnered with Lockheed Martin to host a fun-filled day on the St. Lawrence River. (Sponsorship does not imply endorsement.)
Tickets will be on sale throughout the month at $5 per adult ticket and $3 for children ages 6-12. Children 5 and younger can enjoy the day for free with no ticket necessary.
Each ticket includes admission to the world-famous Antique Boat Museum, where visitors can take a self-guided tour of the museum and grounds and explore the 106-foot Rand McNally houseboat “La Duchesse.” Children’s activities will be available featuring crafts, photos and more.
Ticket holders can take a boat ride on the St. Lawrence River and enjoy a barbecue picnic lunch at the museum river shed. Visitors are invited to hitch a ride on the Family and MWR trolley to explore the village of Clayton and its many shops, galleries, museums and restaurants.
Bus shuttle transportation to Fort Drum Rides the River will be provided from Magrath Sports Complex.
Mark your calendar to save the date for your Family to enjoy this special day on the St. Lawrence River. For more information, call 772-5370.
