Paddle & Pour is the event that leads up to Memorial Day in the Town of Pittsford, NY. This event features great live music and an opportunity to try tastings from local wineries and a variety of foods are offered. Our veterans from Post 899 provide their offerings at their food tent and we help setup, serve and tear down. A lot of work, but a lot of fun and a chance to meet the community! The Pittsford Regatta is held during Paddle and Pour. The Erie Canal Path is a great place to view the Pittsford Regatta competition.
