There's also a Family Bonfire Night in the fall.
In December, activities move indoors where children enjoy tea with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.
While you’re visiting Boscobel, check out these other noteworthy venues right around the corner. About 10 miles away in Carmel is the 14,000-acre Fahnestock State Park, which offers hiking trails, a beach, and camping. Venture across the river and take a guided tour of West Point, or check out 100 outdoor sculptures by acclaimed artists picturesquely situated on the landscaped fields at Storm King Arts Center in Mountainville.
