Fun for Everyone in Hoosick Falls
Join HAYC3 for Hoosipalooza-3, the Hoosick community celebration day that’s jam-packed with all kinds of activities for kids, grown-ups and families, on Saturday, March 1. Start the day at 11 a.m., with a walk in Wood Memorial Park amid the harmonious sounds of a collection of wind chimes created by local artists and the wind. The always-exciting Bed Race will take off at noon on Main Street with prizes awarded for the fastest, funniest and most creative bed designs. (To enter the race, visit hayc3.org for rules and registration forms.) Afterward, the fun moves into the warmth of the Armory where the HFCS Jazz Band will play all the crowd favorites; and at 1:30 p.m., community members of all ages are invited to get into the spirit of the Hoosick Barn Quilt project and create their own quilt square on paper (supplies provided) to be featured in an installation at the Armory. Otha Day and his “Drum to the Beat” Drum Circle will also be on hand to lead a lively drum circle. Using provided instruments (or bring your own), people can participate in interactive drumming to create in-the-moment music; a great activity for all ages. No experience is necessary. The drum circle will be followed by a dazzling performance of Hoosick’s very own Twirlettes, featuring a collection of talented girls performing well-honed baton routines.
Don’t forget to start looking for the HooOwl starting on Saturday, February 15. Clues for the Hunt will be posted daily at hayc3.org. The first to find him wins the big prize.
