With the holidays over and the cold weather setting in, January may seem like a good time to hibernate—but not so for Westchester and Hudson Valley families! Our January GoList provides plenty of rationale for getting out and taking advantage of the compelling programs in our area. Many are even free!
Several live shows are worth booking tickets early for, among them Skatetacular, which combines ice skating and theater. For outdoor fun that embraces the season, bundle up for the Hudson Valley Rail Trail WinterFest. And even if you hadn’t previously thought to hone your rapping technique, how could you resist a workshop led by the first hip-hop ambassador to the U.S. State Department at Freestyle Poetry Workshop with Toni Blackman (which is free, to boot). Lest we forget the key holiday of the month, teach your kids about civic duty by finding a cause to lend a hand to on the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service.
These are just a sample of the highlights we’ve identified for you, so read on for more and consult our ever-growing Event Calendar for daily picks. Don’t worry: There’ll still be plenty of time to sit home by the fire in your jammies!
