Cold Spring is known for its First Friday evenings, but for Feb. 6, the monthly series will expand into a full day of winter-themed activities.
The Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce, in association with the Philipstown Recreation Department, Hudson Highlands Land Trust and Friends of Philipstown, presents “Cold Spring Arts Winter First Friday.”
More than 25 Main Street businesses will be holding winter-themed events throughout the day as part of Cold Spring Arts First Friday, expanded in honor of the Philipstown Winter Carnival, set for Feb. 7.
The chamber is sponsoring an ice sculptor, Bill Bywater, who will be working from 4 to 7 p.m. at the foot of Main Street near the Metro-North station. His original pieces will then be displayed along Main Street.
The varied activities also include: “How to Keep Hands Soft & Smooth in Winter” from 1 to 3 p.m. at Country Touch; “Winter Wardrobe Consultation,” from 1 to 3 p.m. at Indigo Chic; “Icy Glitter Rhinestones, ” a display of glittery rhinestones for the season from 3 to 5p.m. at Bijou Galleries; and from 4 to 6 p.m., “Pigment Snow Throw,” an interactive painting project, at Gallery 66 NY (where “Show the Love” will be the theme of a gallery opening from 6 to 9 p.m.).
The Philipstown Winter Carnival will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Feb. 7 at the Philipstown Recreation Center and Winter Hill, both in Garrison.
