Hudson Valley celebrity sightings have increased over the past couple of years. Some residents knew about a celebrity event, while others have randomly come upon some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

Those who want to support local business and meet a celebrity may be in luck if they visit Samuel's Sweet Shop which is owned by Paul Rudd and his wife Julie, Hilarie Burton and Jeffery Dean Morgan.

Within the Hudson Valley, I have had the pleasure of meeting celebrities. Recently, I met Butch PatrickThe now grown, "child werewolf" attended the Summerween Event in the Hudson Valley.

Butch Patrick played the role of Eddie Munster, also known as the child werewolf on The Munsters from 1964 until 1966. He was also in the 1966 feature film Munster, Go Home!

Butch Patrick signed autographs and hosted a meet and greet in Orange County, NY.

Butch Patrick's appearance at Rock Fantasy in Middletown, NY took place on Thursday, August 31, 2023 at 5pm until 7pm. The party then continued at Quinnz Pinz where guests were able to play pinball with Butch and join in on a VIP bowling party as well. 

One of my favorite celebrity encounters was with Kelsey Grammer, also known as "Fraiser". I wonder if my radio career has any influence on growing up and watching Dr. Crane give his listeners advice on his radio show.

Hundreds of smiling faces showed up to see one of their favorite celebrities. Kelsey Grammer was on site chatting, hugging, pouring beer and lifting the spirits of those who attended at Barton Orchards in Poughquag, NY.

Barton Orchards was thankful that he stopped by. Everyone left with smiles on their faces and a happy glow all thanks to Grammer who made a difference in hundreds of lives on one special day.

It was heartwarming to talk to him one on one and also share some laughs. He also owns Faith American Brewing Company. It was founded by Kelsey Grammer in 2015 and is made in the Hudson Valley.
