Though February is prone to unsavory weather, the bright side is the many exciting family events happening in Westchester and the Hudson Valley. With celebrations of Valentine’s Day, Presidents’ Day, Black History Month, Mardi Gras and Chinese New Year, the fun is sure to chase away the chill!
Not all the events we’re highlighting this month fall under those themes. With the recent closing of The Big Apple Circus and Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus, the upcoming performance by the Royal Hanneford Circus takes on added significance. Two iconic events are Hudson River EagleFest, where visitors flock to glimpse the arrival of these majestic birds of prey, and Winter Hoot, a three-day feel-good extravaganza of live music, blacksmithing, square dancing, community jams and more. Several stage performances are specifically geared for kids, like Disney’s Choo-Choo Soul with Genevieve. Though the dead of winter, February comes to life with seasonal fun at Old-Fashioned Winter’s Afternoon.
