It's time for local holiday fairs, and I am doing my best to keep you informed about all of them. It's part of my mission to get everybody here in the Hudson Valley to shop local this holiday season. And so many of these events are put on to help a great cause. Ready to hear about another one?

Tuesday, Nov. 27, head to the VFW on East Chester Street in Kingston for a Holiday Sip n Shop. There will be over 30 vendors, so you'll have plenty of chances to get your shopping done. Plus, wine tastings. That would be the sip part of Sip n Shop. There will even be a DJ playing tunes to keep the party going. There are a lot of talented artists here in the Hudson Valley, so why not take advantage of that and keep it local? And proceeds go to the Ulster County SPCA. It's a win/win.
