Sinterklass - An Old Dutch Tradition ~ Rhinebeck Festivities

https://www.facebook.com/sinterklaasrhinebeck/Every year brings new events and characters to dazzle our community, honor our children and bring light to this darkest time of the year. Sinterklaas brings over 250 musicians, actors, magicians and other magical performers to town to entertain you!

The Sinterklaas Festivities draw on the Hudson Valley’s Dutch heritage, but with some modern day twists. Children are the focus — becoming kings and queens for the day, turning the switches of the original story into royal scepters. Children make scepters and crowns for themselves at the Crowns and Branches workshops. “But it can’t be about the wanting and having, either.” says creator Jeanne Flemming, “They each have to tie wishes into their branch — one for the community, one for the family, one for the world. They understand their responsibility to be a good king or queen.”

"...just a smile away from Whoville with a hint of It's a Wonderful Life."
