Love Pumpkins? Don't Miss 'The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze'

There are people who like pumpkins, and then there are the people behind the annual Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze. Since 2004, this Halloween celebration has grown ever larger and more elaborate in its use of the thing perhaps most associated with the October holiday: pumpkins! Make time to attend this amazing event, running through the end of November in Croton-on-Hudson.

Grape Stomping Festival at Robibero Family Vineyards

It's that time of year again: Halloween stores are open for business, temperatures have started their steady decline, and it's time for vineyards to harvest their sweet crop. Oh, you didn't know about that last one? Well, Robibero Family Vineyards hopes to change that with their annual Grape Stomping Festival! You might have attended a wine festival before, but you probably didn't get your feet dirty doing it!

The Repair Cafe - Another Great Hudson Valley Initiative

Repair Cafés are a FREE community movement in the Hudson Valley where residents bring their beloved but broken items, and together with volunteer Repair Coaches, they fix them!  One of the great reasons to live in the Hudson Valley is being part of our communities where people work together and care about each other.

The Repair Cafe goal is to reduce how much stuff goes into the waste stream, to preserve and pass on traditional repair know-how, and to foster community, sustainability, and resilience.  The Repair Café idea was born in Amsterdam in 2009 and was brought to New Paltz by volunteer organizer John Wackman in 2013. His dedication, enthusiasm, and success inspired others to launch Repair Cafe events in their communities.

Repair Cafes are currently conducted in New Paltz, Gardiner, Kingston, Poughkeepsie, Rhinebeck, Rosendale, and Warwick.
