More than 1,000 people turned out for this morning’s March of Dimes March for Babies at the Walkway Over the Hudson.

The march stepped off from the Poughkeepsie landing shortly after 10 a.m.

The festival on the Poughkeepsie landing, which features kid’s show characters, air castles and children’s activities was scheduled to run until about 2 p.m., said event coordinator Lynne Versaci. The festival also includes live music and a BBQ.

The event not only serves as a fundraiser for the March of Dimes, Versaci said, but also as an event for people to familiarize themselves with the organization’s services.

The March of Dimes works to prevent birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

“Our goal is to reach the day when every baby is born healthy,” said Annette Trotta, executive director of the March of Dimes Westchester office.
