Hudson Valley Rail Trail's Annual Winterfest

It’s time once again for the Hudson Valley Rail Trail’s Annual WinterFest. The event will be held on Saturday January 10, 2015 from 11 am to 2 pm at the Hudson Valley Rail Trail Depot at 101 New Paltz Road in Highland.

Now in its 18th year, the WinterFest continues to provide wonderful entertainment for the entire family.  Twenty plus regional restaurants bring their best batches of chili to compete for the coveted “Best of Fest” People’s Choice Award in both the meat and vegetarian categories.  The chili entries vary widely from mild to spicy.  A great taste for everyone.

Children just love WinterFest with a great number of free activities and games designed with them in mind.  The main attraction is the heated Lowe’s Project Tent where kids can make simple craft projects under the supervision of Lowe’s employees.
All of the materials and tools needed for the activity are donated by Lowe’s of Highland.  In addition, there are a number of games designed for the children’s participation.

In addition, there is a wagon drawn hayride along the trail, marshmallows for toasting and roasted chestnuts for all to enjoy.  On sale at the Hudson Valley Rail Trail Grille are hot dogs, hot beverages and more.

So come on out and enjoy the day.  Admission is $2.00 with children six and under free.  Taste one chili for fifty cents for taste them all for $8.00.

That’s Saturday January 10th from 11 am to 2 pm at the Hudson Valley Rail Trail Depot at 101 New Paltz Road in Highland.
