Water and pop music bring summer closer

May 31, 2013 by  

People who cannot wait for summer should take the drive to Frenchtown, just 45 minutes from Ewing, and enjoy a ride down the Delaware River.

Other river activities include canoes, kayaks, and rafts. These trips take three to four hours which is why the last ride begins three hours prior to closing. Halfway down the river, riders will enjoy a free barbecue meal at the ‘Famous River Hot Dog Man’. No one should get too hot while they eat, however, because the picnic tables are in the river.

There are changing rooms, showers, and restrooms available for riders, as well as a free life jacket. Rides range in price from $28 to $50 and include lunch and taxes.

Rides began earlier this week on May 27, and continue through September 6. The fun begins at 2998 Daniel Bray Highway on Route 29 in Frenchtown.

Those who are not keen on water activities had a pop festival to attend yesterday at the Sun National Bank Center, 81 Hamilton Avenue in Trenton.

Singers included Cher Lloyd, Carly Rae Jepsen, Jason Derulo, Emblem 3, and Hot Chelle Rae. Jepson may have finished third on ‘Canadian Idol’, but she is clearly first with her fans, winning two gold singles, two Juno Award nominations, and having two albums out.

She is also the voice behind the iconic single ‘Call Me Maybe’, which has spawned numerous copycat videos. Fans of all ages will appreciate poster printing for the ability to bring a picture of their favorite singers into their own home.
