There are some fun activities to do in Hudson. One is Art on the Green which takes place every August. There are a a number of artists that show their work ranging from oil paintings to jewelry. Kettle corn is always popular and there are several organizations such as the Masons and Rotary Club that serve lunch. I have seen woodworkers and pottery designers there as well. The weather is usually nice at that time of year as well. It is held across the street from the clock tower and a good time is had by all.
A Taste of Hudson is held on Labor Day weekend at the First and Main shopping area. You pay for a cash card and then go around to local restaurants and give them your card to enjoy a taste of their food. I found it interesting to see what the foods tasted like. There was one restaurant I always wanted to try and since they were there took advantage of trying their foods. There was a new restaurant there too and I really enjoyed their food. I won't mention any names as you need to try it for yourself. This year Acme was there giving out food samples and I got to taste some new brands of tortilla chips, crackers and even some cheese. It is a fun way to spend an afternoon. Here is the card you get:
On Memorial Day there is a parade through downtown Hudson. It is about 30 minutes long and is very enjoyable. The Hudson Band marches. They are always a treat to hear. There are old cars, firetrucks, dancers, sometimes even horses. My children always enjoyed going.
