Throughout 2023, Mother Nature has been particularly antagonistic as far as event planning. August through October saw six consecutive weekends of rain and the earlier part of the summer was marked with rain, rain, and rain as well, almost always managing to put a damper on weekend events. Sometimes we got lucky that the rains can just after we packed up, and sometimes we got rained on. We were fortunate that November was not particularly soggy and we had two great Revolutionary War events at Ft. Tryon Park and New Bridge Landing with nice weather. Unfortunately, that streak was broken again. The Friday, December 1, Christmas Parade was a wash-out for Lord Donegall's Regiment, which was looking forward to making a reappearance since the COVID lockdowns began. So, alas, we have no pictures to show, nothing to report. We are, however, looking forward to Saturday, December 23, at Old Bethpage Village where our 1830s Victorians will once again join them for their Christmas Candlelight Tours. Fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate!
