Spreading Joy! Holiday Train Stops in Mechanicville-Take a Look!
Spreading Joy! Holiday Train Stops in Mechanicville-Take a Look!
It had been three years since the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolled through the Capital Region. It made three stops; Mechanicville, Saratoga Springs, and Fort Edward. The first was Mechanicville on a rainy Sunday night. This is where I enjoyed the festive holiday train. They are traveling across the country to 106 stops. At each stop, they play live music and collect donations for the local food banks. Country Artist Lindsay Ell was the musical entertainment and she was awesome. The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train also presented the Mechanicville Community Center with a check for $3500 to help restock the food bank. Even though the weather wasn't ideal, a couple of hundred families joined the fun.

The White Water Derby has been a staple in the City of Mechanicville since I can remember. It has been off for a couple of years because of COVID-19 but it is back this year! Not only is it a canoe and kayak race, the "anything that floats" race is back this year too. Here's how you can enter. TODAY (MARCH 28TH) IS THE DEADLINE TO ENTER!
What is Bocce and Why is My Kid Heckling Me While I Play?
What is Bocce and Why is My Kid Heckling Me While I Play?
My family has been playing bocce for as long as I can remember. My grandfather is actually one of the founders of the Italian Fraternal Society in Mechanicville where they built several bocce courts under a pavilion. My mom is now the president of the league. Bocce is a great game that anyone at any age can play. In fact, my grandmother played bocce until she was ninety-eight.
