Andes Community Day 2019 is on August 10th throughout the hamlet of Andes and is filled with local music, food, fun and games to celebrate the traditions of a Catskill community in the summertime. The Parade with children, bands, floats, fire departments and assorted other delights begins once the Trailway Bus travels through the center of town around 11am. Kids await the watermelon eating contest, live music and dancing on the lawn at the Andes Central School, have fun browsing lawn sales, and vendor tables and stop by at the eateries for great summer fare. As always sitting on the wide porch of the Andes Hotel gives you the best view of the happenings throughout the day.
There will be tours of the newly restored Train Station, A Calico Indian Contest, farm tours and a day paddle on the Pepacton Reservoir. More activities are being added so check in as the event gets closer.
