Halloween isn't until Monday, October 31, but this weekend offers two great opportunities for kids to dress up and celebrate the spooky holiday.
On Saturday, October 29, the Hudson Farmers' Market stages its Halloween Bash.
The festivities begin at 9:30 a.m., when the Bad Cats arrive to perform. They will be roaming around the market, in costume, with fiddles and banjos.
At the Kids' Tent, there will be grab bags filled with apples and popcorn from Samascott Orchards, chocolate chip cookies from Happy Belly Hudson, masks, vampire teeth, and more. There will be a temporary tattoo station, a spooky craft spot, some Halloween-y books, and pumpkin/veggie decorating.
Come in costume (or not) to the Hudson Farmers' Market, open at the corner of Sixth and Columbia streets from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
On Sunday, October 30, it's Hudson Halloween 2022.
Trick-or-treating on Warren Street begins at 2:00 p.m. and continues until 4:00 p.m. Look for the sticker on shop windows to know where treats are being doled out.
At 4:00 p.m., participants gather at Seventh Street Park for the parade down Warren Street to Hudson Hall where the "spectacularly spooky costume contest" takes place.
