Summertime is the season when our riverfront comes alive in Troy, through our weekly Rockin’ on the River concert series, through special events like River Fest and the Troy Pig Out. But most importantly, it’s when the summer mariners arrive by waterway.
Big cruise ships, million dollar yachts, the Vermont Sail Freight barge, Solar Sal, historic replicas and pleasure craft of all sizes ply these seas. Sailors from near and afar come to enjoy Troy by way of our Marine Main Street: the Hudson River. Which is why The Enjoy Troy Co. is helping the Troy Downtown Marina roll out the welcome mat for passing travelers with a new “ahoy troy.” campaign.
We have donated two large “ahoy troy. / enjoy troy.” vinyl banners that promote the Troy Downtown Marina, The Downtown Troy Business Improvement District and The Enjoy Troy Co. to passing mariners on the water, and to landlubbers on our shores.
We have also launched a special custom line of “ahoy troy.” t-shirts (click here) and stickers (click here). Right now these products are only available at the Troy Downtown Marina office (behind The River Street Cafe at 429 River St., about 100 feet from the Brown’s Brewing Co. rear deck). And these products are going fast. Please email (click here) The Enjoy Troy Co. for more information about “ahoy troy.” and/or to place an order online].
