Each year, on the first Saturday in December, the town of Hudson hosts a Winter Walk celebration to kick off the holiday season. Warren Street will be closed to automobile traffic and becomes a pedestrian promenade. Most of the stores and galleries use Winter Walk to premier their holiday-inspired decorated store front windows, and stay open later than usual.
Winter Walk 2017 begins at 5pm outside Hudson Hall with Harmony Project Hudson choristers welcoming Santa Claus in his horse-drawn wagon, before helping him to settle into in Hudson Hall’s West Room to greet visitors and listen to children’s holiday wishes. Santa’s elves will distribute a free, gift-wrapped book to every child! While waiting to meet Santa, families can enjoy a warm cuppa courtesy of Harney and Sons Tea in the Common Council Room, or view SEE ME LIKE THIS, an exhibition of photographic portraits created by Valerie Shaff with the young women of Perfect 10 Hudson, on view in the Center Hall Gallery until January 21 .
Saturday, December 2, 2017, 5–8 pm (Rain, Snow, or Shine)
Warren Street, City of Hudson, NY
