This is the Best Trick-Or-Treat Spot in the Hudson Valley
Many people claim to have the best trick-or-treating neighborhood, but there's one street in the Hudson Valley that outdoes all of the rest.
We asked you to tell us where you think the best place in the Hudson Valley is to go hunting for Halloween candy. A listener from the Town of Poughkeepsie said that the "Birdland" neighborhood off of Route 9 near IBM was one spot where all of the houses get into the spirit with decorations and activities for kids.
In Rhinebeck, Anne Kurtz told us about her house on Primrose Hill Rd. She has a haunted wild west display complete with a stagecoach robbery. Some entire Hudson Valley towns even get into the act. Pine Bush's Halloween "Spooktacular" has village-wide trick-or-treating and even a hayride sponsored by a local business owner.
But the one Hudson Valley neighborhood that tops all others is in Cold Spring:
We just recently learned about the insane Halloween displays that have become a yearly tradition on Parrot Street in Cold Spring. Word has it that everyone on the street goes overboard with decorations, including a house owned by a theatrical engineer who incorporates professional effects like the one seen above.
While the video looks incredible, those who've been there say it's even more impressive in person. Sounds like it's worth the trip if you're looking for a good neighborhood to trick-or-treat in.
Have you been to Parrot Street on Halloween? We'd love to hear what it's like. And if you know of another local neighborhood that's even better, please tell us about it in the comments section below or on our Facebook page.
