HUDSON – After last year’s hiatus due to pandemic restrictions, Hudson Recreation hosted its 23rd fall community festival, which is now known as Rec Fest (formerly Pumpkin Fest). 

Packed with family-friendly activities, the five-hour event took place Oct. 16 on the baseball field at Riverside Park.

Festivalgoers enjoyed carnival games, craft projects, giveaways and refreshments offered mostly by community organizations and town agencies. Food and dessert trucks were also stationed onsite.

Kids played on inflatable amusements and took the seat of vehicles supplied by Hudson’s police, fire and public works departments. Meanwhile, live entertainment was provided by guitarist Paul Courchaine, Animal Adventures and children’s musical performer Mister Vic.

Avidia Bank sponsored this year’s event.
