Teddy bear parade, petting zoo and raptors
The Putnam History Museum and Constitution Island Association will present the annual Family Day on the island from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24. The event includes interactions with miniature horses from the Topfield Equestrian Center (formerly the Therapeutic Equestrian Center), a petting zoo with farm animals, reptile displays from the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum and raptors from Teatown Reservation. Guides will also offer tours of the island’s Revolutionary War redoubts.
Children are invited to bring a stuffed animal and participate in the annual Teddy Bear Parade on the lawn. Storyteller Jonathan Kruk will present tales of “Ye Olde Hudson Valley.” Food will be available for sale or bring a picnic.
A van will provide transportation to the island beginning at 9:30 a.m. from the Metro-North station in Cold Spring. The event is free but a donation of $10 per adult and $9 per child and senior is suggested. Tickets are available at eventbrite.com.
