Winterfest at Hudson Crossing Park

SCHUYLERVILLE — A weekend of winter activities will be staged at Hudson Crossing Park this weekend. “Take A Friend Snowmobiling” will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18 and offers the opportunity for adults aged 18 years + to take a fun, safe snowmobile ride starting at the Dix Bridge, located on the scenic Hudson River / Champlain Canal Lock 5. Children are invited to ride on a sled operated by a parent or guardian or an experienced club member. Area clubs will have sleds available for use. Each participant will be introduced to and instructed on the proper operation and safety of a snowmobile prior to being guided on a controlled ride within Hudson Crossing Park by experienced club members. Trail grooming equipment will be on display and participants will have an opportunity to talk with club members and officers to learn more about the sport and trail system. Helmets, hot refreshments and a warming fire will be provided. Organizers advise participants to dress appropriately for the outdoors. There is no charge to participate. Inspired by “Star Wars,” a Rogue Sled event will take place noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 19. Attendees are invited to bring their saucers and sail down the slopes. Other activities include an ice harvesting demonstration, Skijoring with Gillian Scott, horse drawn wagons or sleighs (by Washington County Draft Horses,) Crazy Hat Head & Snow Sculpture Contests, Bonfire with UFO’s - “unidentified frying objects,” Fat Tire Bike Rides with Spa City Bikes, an ice fishing demonstration, and ice rescue demonstration by Schuyler Hose Company.
