Summer has officially kicked off in the Hudson Valley. We'll be spending more time outdoors enjoying different activities and events, attending shows and special events.

One of my favorite things to experience during the summer months are the local fairs, festivals and carnivals. At times, these events are open for a few days and then residents wait until the following year to enjoy all that it has to offer.

A unique carnival business is a place where Hudson Valley residents can visit for many services.
