Back to school is around the corner (how did that happen) so it is likely that many Hudson Valley parents are trying to figure out what to do in this homestretch to keep the kids busy - Poughkeepsie Plaza for the win with their final 'Kids Hour' of the summer, this Wednesday, August 7th.

Geared towards the 10 year and under crowd, this last 'Kids Hour' will include a special appearance from a princess, cupcake decorating, and of course, free coloring and activity sheets too.  The event will take place just outside JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts in the Poughkeepsie Plaza from 10am until 11am.

Raffles drawings will be held at 11am (need to be present to win), and prizes include Hudson Valley Renegades tickets, SplashDown Beach passes, Bounce Poughkeepsie jump time, and more!  Check out the Kids Hour Facebook event for more information.

Remember, stores are open during the current construction in the Poughkeepsie Plaza, as the strip mall prepares for some new tenants, and store relocations.  Read more about our coverage of the Poughkeepsie Plaza construction here.
