A bounty of festivals and other summer fun continues this weekend for Westchester and Hudson Valley families, with a mix of live performances, carnival action, and a few twists and jumps.
Held in a rural setting, the inaugural Hudson Valley Brassroots Festival offers a whopping nine hours of brass-band music, plus food, farm tours, and a bonfire. The price is reasonable.
Because we can’t get enough of summer fairs and festivals, we’re excited to highlight the Putnam County Fair, which has all the trappings of carnival amusement, live animals, and other fun stuff. The FREE Irish Heritage Celebration helps fill the long void between annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, and if your family is into extreme anything, you won’t want to miss the Insane Inflatable 5K—not your toddler’s bouncy house, for sure!
Another top pick: We love that a local birthday-party venue is hosting its own birthday bash, and, turning the tables, the public is invited to be the guest for FREE (no present required!).
