Arm-of-the-Sea, Saugerties resident practitioners of puppet magic, return to the waterfront for its annual anarchic spectacle, the Esopus Creek Puppet Suite. This year's open-air pageant will feature larger-than-life papier-mache characters, shadow projections, masked dancers and live music woven into a mythic string of stories conjured from a single patch of Creekside real estate. The congenial ghosts of Connie and Madeline Lynch—former proprietors of Lynch's Marina—will rise from the grave to guide the audience through an evening of reveries and revelations. The suite will be performed at 8pm on August 17, 18, and 19 at Tina Chorvas Park on the Saugerties waterfront. Bring your own seating. Suggested admission is $12 for adults, $5 for children and $25 for a family of four. (845) 246-7873.

While tie dye and tolerance have never really gone out of style around here, those who’d like to mark the anniversary in some way have a number of local goings-on to slake their thirst for nostalgia, peace, love and music. Hey now, we still know how to brew that stuff from scratch.
