Cold Spring Festival in Works for Cycling Classic

Chamber of Commerce to hold meeting Feb. 25

The Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce announced on Feb. 18 the first event of the 2013 season. A “festival event” is being planned for May 5 in conjunction with the Putnam Cycling Classic and in partnership with Putnam County Tourism, titled “Pedaling Into Spring, a Cold Spring festival.” The chamber will meet soon with the Village of Cold Spring officials for approval.

There will be an informational meeting at Hudson Valley Outfitters, 63 Main St. in Cold Spring on Monday, Feb. 25, from 6 to 8 p.m. The upcoming event is intended to market Main Street to all visiting Cold Spring for the cycling event.

The residents and business anxious to shake off winter will usher in spring as Main Street is transformed into a festival of flowers, food and a fun shopping experience for all. “It is time for us to unite around a new season, a collaborative marketing approach and a theme that generates excitement and enthusiasm. This is not just about welcoming cyclists and their families, but allows us to take advantage of marketing our businesses to all who are mothers. Let’s transform Main Street the week before Mother’s Day to a festival of flowers,” said Vinny Tamagna, newly elected president of the Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber has called the event “Pedaling Into Spring” because while the cyclists are pedaling, flowers are “petal-ing” and our shops will be “peddling.”

“We are excited about the opportunities ahead and have had so many new members join the chamber to create new and exciting opportunities like this for our business community. Please join us on Feb. 25,” said Tamagna.
