No fight to keep Battle of Plattsburgh Weekend fresh and fun


Booth noted that the musical events held this year “could be a musical festival by itself.” 

Oh Betty, featuring Tim Hartnett and Julie Canepa, will perform, along with Bluz House Rockers, the McKrells, the Clem Hawkins Revival Band and P

rofessor Louie and the Cromatix.

Several acts will also play at the Israel Green Tavern, and Her Majesty’s Royal Marine Band will be featured Saturday evening, Sept. 8.

The annual Riverside Cemetery Memorial will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, with Keith Herkalo hosting the event.

This year’s parade, to be held Saturday, Sept. 8, will feature more marching bands and participants.

“One thing people will notice is the grand marshal’s car will be empty (aside from the driver),” Booth said. “This will be in memory of those who went to com

bat and did not come back.”
