Every summer the county parks department hosts a series of cultural festivals. Taste delicious ethnic foods, enjoy the music, visit the booths. Walk up to the top of the Kensico Dam and marvel at the spectacular views of the reservoir and county. The festivals began earlier this summer. If you missed some of them there is still an opportunity to enjoy four of the remaining festivals (the Irish festival is held at Ridge Road park in Hartsdale).
