The 12th annual, fiercely independent Woodstock Film Festival took place from Wednesday, September 21 through Sunday, September 25. If you missed this year's fest, you can catch up on highlights and order merchandise at www.woodstockfilmfestival.com.
Tomorrow (October 1) is the launch of the 8th annual Lark in the Park—10 days of outdoor activities in the Woodstock and Catskill Park region. According to Steve Berg, president of the Catskill Mountain Club, “We’re excited to offer the [Lark] this year for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the almost insurmountable odds we faced to do anything at all in the wake of tropical storms Irene and Lee. The Lark has been running since the 100th anniversary of the Catskill Park in 2004.”
Berg continues, “This year, despite the flood damage, we are pleased to present 40+ events throughout the Park and neighboring counties. These activities appeal to adults and kids and range from fly-fishing instruction to hiking; backpacking advice and a lecture on walking in old Woodstock. We’re even planning to offer golf lessons!
