Every year on the first Saturday in December, Warren Street becomes a winter wonderland for the Hudson Opera House Winter Walk. The street is closed to cars and people are invited to stroll up and down the street for the annual holiday celebration.
The fun begins this Saturday (December 1, 2012) at 5 pm with the Santa Parade and continues until the fireworks show begins at 8:15.
Here is some info from HudsonOperaHouse.org:
Winter Walk transforms the City of Hudson’s main commercial street into a festive thoroughfare with twinkling lights, brightly decorated shops, horse-drawn wagons offering rides, stilt walkers and marionettes, bagpipers and live reindeer. Look for Frosty the Snowman on the street, as well as Marley’s Ghost and Scrooge, the walking Grandfather Clock, the Tin Soldier, and a host of angels, snowflakes and elves of all sizes.
With a well-earned reputation as a premier Hudson Valley event, Winter Walk is unlike any other holiday festival. It takes place on the City of Hudson’s mile-long historic Warren Street, stretching from Front Street to 8th Street and spilling out to adjacent streets as well. It is well known for its quirky take on the holidays and for the diversity of entertainment provided.
