It seems like opinions are split right down the middle when it comes to fall officially being upon us.  Half of the Hudson Valley is all about it, bring on the pumpkins, sweaters, and apple picking; the other half, well they are sadly watching the last bits of summer fade away.

For those having a hard time making the transition from summer to fall, how about some fireworks to make it feel like summer once again?  There are a few fun events happening in the Hudson Valley this weekend that will close with fireworks, here's the scoop.
