Celebration of Lights Parade and Fireworks Festival
Holiday kickoff festivities take place throughout Poughkeepsie: two tree-lighting ceremonies, a festive parade with floats and Santa, performances by Arm of the Sea Theatre puppeteers and others, a dazzling fireworks display over the Hudson River, and a screening of It's a Wonderful Life.
Most of these events are FREE.
