Sinterklaas Celebration has put smiles on children’s faces, brought visitors from all over the world, celebrated the area’s Dutch Heritage and diversity, all while making magic. Events are free and open to all, with a special emphasis on families and kids.

Join their Children’s Maritime Procession which includes their very own Sinterklaas, who comes from Holland to lead the procession featuring giant puppets, illuminated stars, fish, flags, this year’s honored animal (the Sturgeon), their own Rip Van Winkle, and the great Hudson River itself.

As parents, we want to raise compassionate and kind children who strive to make this world a better place. What better time to teach our children the importance of giving and gratitude than the holidays? However this is easier said than done. If you're like me, most of your charity comes from your wallet, and financial donations can be a hard concept to teach children. Or you may want your child to be involved but worry they are too young to participate or understand. To make the most meaningful impact on our children, they should be actively involved and able to relate to the cause.
