Yes, that’s a monkey riding a dog, just the type of interspecies shenanigans one encounters when one visits the Hudson Valley Fair. The fair kicks off on April 18 and continues for three weekends, ending May 4. The Dutchess Stadium in Fishkill (home of the HV Renegades) is the spot, and tickets are $3.50 with a twofer coupon and $7 without. Kids 2 and under are free. Expect rides, a petting zoo, shows, and fair food. We will probably take a pass on the dog and monkey show and in favor of heading straight for the fried dough and magic show. Check out the Hudson Valley Fair website for all the pertinent info.
