Next Friends Event:
5th Annual Winter Carnival
The 5th Annual Philipstown Winter Carnival will be a two-site event, with free family-friendly activities occurring at the Philipstown Recreation Center (107 Glenclyffe Drive) and Winter Hill (20 Nazareth Way), both in Garrison as part of our partnership with Hudson Highlands Land Trust.
The festivities begin on Friday, February 9, with movie night at the Philipstown Recreation Center. Families are invited to enjoy a free showing of The Mighty Ducks and pre-show spaghetti dinner.
Planned outdoor family-friendly activities will begin at both sites at 1:00pm on Saturday, February 10. Winter Hill activities include sledding and indoor children’s entertainment. Pappi’s Mediterranean food truck will be parked onsite with hot food and beverages available for sale. Grab your ice skates and head over to Philipstown Recreation Center for an open skate session at the outdoor rink. Food from B&L Deli and other hot refreshments will be available for purchase.
Parking is available at both sites and a free shuttle bus will provide transportation between locations. Activities will be adjusted to fit the day’s weather conditions. Please visit philipstownwintercarnival.com for more information.

Live Edge Picnic Table Sponsorship: $1500
As beautiful and unique as the trees produced from, live edge wood refers to the natural edge of the wood under the bark after it is cut. Live edge wood keeps the original lines of the trunk along its edges, portraying the wood in its very naturalistic state. See actual tables at the Rec Center!
All monies raised will support the completion of the pavilion at Philipstown Park
