What to do on Saturday's Hudson Valley Vernal Equinox.

The Vernal Equinox, the longest day of the year, happens this year on a Saturday. Doesn't it behoove us to make good use of all this extra daylight by attending an event (or events) in the Hudson Valley?
Vernal What?
There are only two times of the year when the Earth's axis is tilted neither toward nor away from the sun, resulting in a "nearly" equal amount of daylight and darkness at all latitudes. These events are referred to as Equinoxes and will occur on March 19th at 9:49 pm MDT (Vernal Equinox - the first day of Spring) and again on September 22nd at 7:30 am MDT (Autumnal Equinox - the first day of fall).
