Change of Location for Hudson's Reindeer in the Park Event on Saturday

Organizers, mindful of the extreme temperatures, are moving the event from Lakefront Park to the Camp St. Croix Y Camp site.

Updated below. Organizers of Hudson's Reindeer in the Park are looking for a warm place to hold the event Saturday, according to their page on Facebook: "We are working on an INDOOR location to move this to this year due to the extreme cold weather. Please help to spread the word!"

And it sounds like they have found their new location. On the Hudson Patch Facebook page, Becca Johnson, who serves on the event's planning committee, posted: 

"Reindeer in the Park is sponsored by local Hudson businesses to bring Santa and his live reindeer to downtown Hudson normally at the band-shell in Lakefront Park. I have received word that we are moving it to Camp St Croix Y Camp located at 532 County Rd F, Hudson, Wisconsin. The weather will just be too cold to have it all outdoors this year. There is horse-drawn wagon rides, activities for kids, Hudson Mom's group bake sale, hot cocoa for sale with Boy Scouts for their fundraiser, Kettle Korn for sale. The event itself is free because of the sponsors. Please share the word of this event and new location this year! We are doing our best to move everything and plan accordingly."

UPDATE: Here is the text of the news release about the event and the site change. 

Hudson’s popular Reindeer in the Park event will be held on Saturday, December 7 but the location has been changed because of the expected extreme cold weather. The Reindeer event has moved from Lakefront Park to YMCA Camp St. Croix, 532 County Road F, on the south side of Hudson across from River Crest Elementary School.
