WINTER WALK DECEMBER 5, 2015

Stair_galleries_WALTER_HILL_PHOTO-1-e1446778911506-1024x581

Winter Walk
Hudson’s liveliest, largest, and most colorful event of the year!
December 5, 2015, 5–8 pm | Rain or Shine!


Now in it’s 19th year, Hudson’s mile-long Warren Street is transformed into a festive boulevard with twinkling lights, brightly decorated shops, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, live reindeer, petting zoo, horse-drawn wagon, carolers, and a legion of characters and performers.

The event begins at 5pm with the carillon bells of the First Presbyterian Church to mark the start of the Santa Parade that transports Mr. & Mrs. Claus from the Hudson Opera House to City Hall (520 Warren Street), where free books are 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.

At 8:00 pm, Fireworks launched 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.

The 2015 Lincoln Funeral Train in Hudson

Funeral+train+tableau

On April 25 the train carrying President Lincoln's remains to Springfield stopped briefly in Hudson, NY for the citizens to pay their respects. According to a passage from the journal of Assistant Adjutant General Edward D. Townsend, commander of the train that carried the remains of President Abraham Lincoln from Washington to Springfield:

"At Hudson . . . elaborate preparations had been made. Beneath an arch hung with black and white drapery and... evergreen wreaths, was a tableau representing a coffin resting upon a dais; a female figure in which, mourning over the coffin; a soldier standing at one end and a sailor at the other. While a band of young women dressed in white sang a dirge, two others in black entered the funeral-car, placed a floral device on the President’s coffin, then knelt for a moment of silence, and quietly withdrew. This whole scene was one of the most weird ever witnessed, its solemnity being intensified by the somber light of the torches at that dead hour of night."

To honor the occasion, a reenactment of the events of that night will be held this coming Saturday evening in Hudson. The reenactment will take place at 8:45 in the evening starting at the Basilica on South Front Street in Hudson NY.

Please join us for this historic event, If you choose feel free to wear period or mourning attire. Cof3 Photo: Coffin for the tableau being constructed at Stair Restoration - Johnnie, Spencer and James putting the finishing touches on the coffin.
