Walkway Luminary


On Sunday, May 26, Walkway Over the Hudson is joining with veterans organizations from Dutchess and Ulster County to host a moving sunset flag changing ceremony at 7:30 p.m., and keeping the Walkway open to the public (at no charge) until 10:15 p.m. for Walkway at Night. Throughout the event, the 1.28 mile span will be lined with thousands of paper lanterns honoring those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation. For complete information, visit walkway.org/illuminatethewalkway.

We need your help to ensure we can create the most striking display imaginable. Purchase your luminaries online* here, or in-person at either of our merchandise pavilions** beginning Saturday, May 4, where everyone is invited to sign the remembrance banners that will hang during the event.

* All online orders will be personalized by a Walkway volunteer and randomly placed on the bridge during the event. They will not be shipped. We cannot guarantee an online purchaser will be able to find their specific lantern. Blank luminaries may be purchased online and picked up in our offices (80 Washington Street, Suite 300, Poughkeepsie) during regular business hours (9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday) to be customized and brought to the event. Please email walkway@walkway.org to arrange pickup.

** All luminaries purchased at our merchandise pavilions (open 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays) can be personalized and brought to the Walkway on the day of the event, or left to be placed randomly by our volunteer Ambassadors.
