ITHACA, N.Y. — At the 4th annual Paddle Against Pollution Monday afternoon, attendees took over the lakeside with music, dancing, paddle boards, and lounging in the sun on one of the last few beautiful days of summer.

The annual Labor Day festival happens in Stewart Park and the proceeds from the event benefit the SUP’r Kids Ithaca program, which serves underprivileged youth by introducing them to water and environmental activities.
