Troy announces summer events, festivals


TROY, N.Y. -- On Tuesday, the list of events for the city of Troy’s upcoming festivals was revealed at Riverfront Park.

“The events in this city, it’s an economic stimulus and it helps each and every business. In Lansingburgh, for instance, each Saturday night when we hold Powers Park concerts, every business spikes ten to fifteen percent from the overload of people that are coming in,” said Vito Ciccarelli, special events coordinator for the city of Troy.

Troy is focused on bigger live musical acts, an increase of live artistic demonstrations, and improvements in responce to complaints from festival-goers in previous years.

“Everything’s bigger and better this year. We’ve added new components to River Street Festival, new components to the Troy Pig Out and I have some special surprises that you’re gonna have to actually come up to power park to find out about over the course of the summer,” said Ciccarelli.

One of the big names this year is the Capital Region’s very own Chelsea Cavanaugh, who will be headlining the Troy Pig Out on July 20.

“She’s opened for everybody over the last couple of years and she’s getting better and better every single year. We are pleased to have her coming into our city,” said Ciccarelli.
