Fall Foliage Report: October 2 – 8

I LOVE NY started the “New York Fall Foliage Report” on September 11 and will continue until the end of the foliage season, around the first or second week in November. Montgomery County has started its own annual report this year as well.

Putman Canal Store

Reporting station: Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site, Fort Hunter

Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 40%

Brilliance: Average

Predominating colors: Oranges and yellows emerge with some reds still holding strong

Rating: Nearing midpoint – with the cold of October coming in, expect peak to move in quickly

More color is emerging and the midpoint of the season is approaching. As the weather becomes more fall-like peak season will be here soon.

The weekend is full of activities across the county. The Ames Museum will be open on Saturday. On the National Registry of Historic Places, the museum collection encompasses life in the smallest incorporated village of New York State along with the surrounding areas and local businesses.

The 28th Hagaman Art Show will be held on Saturday and Sunday from 12-4pm at Pawling Hall, 86 Pawling Street. Many area artists will be displaying their works. There is no admission charge.

On Saturday, the City of Amsterdam will host the annual Oktoberfest. The German themed block party on the Bridge Street will feature games, contests, German food, entertainment, vendors, live music, and Biergarten beer specials.

Explore our countryside, enjoy our events, and take in the autumn season!
