Blink! It’s the holiday season again. There are signs everywhere. Peck’s has a donation box for children’s gifts and food, and Narrowsburg Liquors in Peck’s Plaza will once again sponsor Toys for Tots.
Main Street is beginning to put on the glitz, readying for Saturday, November 30 at 6 p.m. to light the tree and sing Christmas carols. There will be no question what season is upon us.
Another clear sign of the season is the opening of “Art in Sixes” at the DVAA. Small works of art, over 300 this year, are available for purchase, either as a unique gift for the “hard-to-get” person, or merely a gift for the gift giver. You probably deserve one after all the shopping you must do this year.
Saturday, December 7 is going to be very busy. “Once Upon a Time,” a live holiday musical comedy for the family, will be performed at the Tusten Theater at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. At 6 p.m., the Narrowsburg Inn will be serving a free light buffet, if you bring a gift for a child. The buffet will include desserts by those “baking bankers” from Catskill Hudson Bank. The Tusten Youth will have their annual holiday party at 6 p.m. in the town hall. After the party, the Santa Express will arrive with Santa’s elves, Mrs. Claus, lots of music, dancing and just the best of holiday fun. The Santa Express is so special it requires a Narrowsburg Fire Department (NFD) escort into town. The firemen remain throughout the show making sure traffic is diverted and all are safe. Thank you NFD.
If you think that is all the celebrations, guess again. The Heron Restaurant is a host site for “The Giving Tree.” You can drop off food and clothes for those in need and if you bring a wrapped gift you will receive a free drink. One last listing: a very funny play reading, “The Butterfingers Angel, Mary & Joseph, Herod the Nut” will take place at Gerard’s River Grill at 8 p.m. on Friday, December 13. Don’t miss it. More to come next writing.
