Davis Orton Gallery’s, Mark Orton, donned beard (mega beard) and costume to the delight of many dozens of kids at the BeLo3rd tent at Hudson’s 15th Annual Winter Walk (organized by the Hudson Opera House). Karen Davis ladled Vico Restaurant’s eggnog in the gallery in the Eggnog Challenge BeLo3rd. Hudson resident Rachel Samuels sports a frothy mustach after sampling. (“Got Eggnog?”). Santa returned to the gallery in beard so as not to break the spell of believers.
The First Halloween Parade in Hudson, sponsored by COARC, Hudson Department of Youth and the Greenport Rescue Squad kicked off at 5:30 at 5th and headed down Warren Street to Promenade Hill Center where an all-ages Costume Contest was held. It was preceded by trick-or-treating by young and old in Warren Street shops that sported a Halloween-Whale logo (only in Hudson.) There was also a Haunted House for most and a “Pumpkin Patch” (less frightening) for the little ones!
