SCHUYLERVILLE, N.Y. >> The third an­nual Hud­son Cross­ing Park Win­ter­fest is sched­uled for noon to 3 p.m. Sun­day, Jan. 20.

The snow date, in case of bad weather, is from noon to 3 p.m. on Sun­day, Feb. 17.

This year’s fam­ily-ori­ented event has a Star Wars type theme, “Han Snowlo: A Win­ter­fest Story.”

Win­ter­fest gives vis­i­tors a chance to learn about ice har­vest­ing and watch a cold water res­cue demon­stra­tion by the Schuylerville Fire Depart­ment on the Cham­plain Canal.

They may also en­joy “Re­turn of the Sled-I” sled­ding, try their hand at “Em­pire Strikes Back” snow bowl­ing, and en­ter the Crazy Hat Head con­test.

Fam­i­lies can also con­duct sci­ence ex­per­i­ments with Hud­son Cross­ing Park Ed­u­ca­tor Jes­sica Sch­w­erd and go on a guided Bird­ing for Be­gin­ners walk.

The Wash­ing­ton County Draft An­i­mal As­so­ci­a­tion will give free horse-drawn sled rides and vis­i­tors will be able to keep warm at the bon­fire, with pizza from 9 Miles East Farm and snacks from a bake sale.

The event is free, but dona­tions are ac­cepted.

Hud­son Cross­ing Park is a non-profit, bi-county park lo­cated in Schuylerville, cen­tered on Cham­plain Canal Lock 5 Is­land north of the vil­lage of Schuylerville on Route 4. The park is open ev­ery day year­round from dawn un­til dusk and is free of charge.
