Places | Hudson, Winterwalk

Another winter and another winter celebration in Hudson, one of my favorite places in this side of the planet. Winterwalk, the annual winter celebration organized by the Hudson Opera House, populates Warren Street with mimes, acrobats on stilts, surreal windows and grand finale with fireworks.

Although I usually experience Winterwalk as a spectator, in 2007 I greatly enjoyed it as a participant:

This winter the tone of the celebration was not as festive and energetic as in the past years ---the weather combined with the economy? But yet Winterwalk is always a wonderful way to win the winter blues before the holidays consumistic madness, in a small city where diversity is very much part of the community.
