The Knickerbocker Ice Festival

       Thirty miles north of Times Square, on Hook Mountain above the western bank of the Hudson River, is the Rockland Lake State Park.  It offers a huge swimming pool, picnic area, bicycle rentals, tennis courts, a lake for fishing, and even two 18-hole golf courses.  But this weekend, it offers something really unique, the Knickerbocker Ice Festival.  Open today until dark (probably about 5:30) and tomorrow until 4, it offers some very unique activities and entertainment, including:

  1. Ice Carving Competition
  2. KIDZ Ice Park
  3. Cold Rock Café
  4. Artists and their art on display and for sale
  5. History lessons and tours
  6. Campfires and a bonfire.

       The weather is supposed to be relatively pleasant (given the 4+ feet of snow we’ve already had this winter), and it’s only a short trip from Manhattan!
