Hudson’s liveliest, largest, and most colorful event of the year!
December 7, 2013, 5–8 pm | Snow date: December 14, 2013
The Hudson Opera House’s Winter Walk is right around the corner — This Saturday, December 7 — and they are in the midst of preparing for the biggest and best one yet.
Once again, Hudson’s mile-long Warren Street will be transformed into a festive boulevard with twinkling lights, brightly decorated shops, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, live reindeer, horse-drawn wagons, carolers, and a legion of characters and performers.
Beginning at 5pm with the carillon bells of the First Presbyterian Church ringing in the Santa Parade to usher Mr. & Mrs. Claus from the Hudson Opera House to City Hall (520 Warren Street). At City Hall, free books will be distributed to children all evening.
The holiday frolicking continues throughout the evening, with activities and performances both inside shops and on the street. From jazz to classical, African drums to banjo, music is everywhere. Face painting, stilt walkers, animal balloons by Tots the Clown, and Roger the Jester compete for children’s attention.
Fireworks launch from Promenade Hill at the foot of Warren Street light up the winter sky marking the conclusion of the festivities, but many businesses—especially restaurants–stay open long after the event.
