To celebrate the return of the Davy Crockett statue to Main St Phoenicia, many of the businesses in town have banded together and proclaimed August 17th as DAVY CROCKETT DAY! The festivities will take place on that day from 12 noon - 1pm with prizes, a look-alike contest, a ukelele show and lots of other fun for all.
The iconic statue was removed from Main St. a few months back while The Alamo Sport's Cantina did some renovation work. Davy was recently reinstalled but in a slightly different place. It now resides in front of the Mystery Spot.
Even the town board (or most of them) got into the fun by passing a resolution to honor the outdoorsman. See Watershed Post article below.
Shandaken's wild for Davy Crockett -- Except for a lone holdout
Anyway, it sounds like a great day. I am planning to go. See you all there!
