Unicyclists, jugglers and maybe even a fire-breather or two will come to Croton on Hudson on June 18, as Treasures & Tales (T&T) hosts a Victorian-style circus and fashion show to benefit Croton Caring Committee, which provides meals to the needy and homebound.
The “Steampunk Circus” fashion show, produced by local teen sisters Joanna and Cori Lobel, will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. “There will be raffles, face painting, temporary tattoos for the kids, and henna tattoos for tweens to adults,” says T&T owner Liz Jacobson. Lobel’s Famous steak sandwiches and local ice cream will be available for sale. Ticket prices are $5 at the door. All funds raised, plus 10 percent of T&T’s sales, will be donated to charity.
Jacobson also is finalizing plans for SummerFest, Croton’s annual street fair, to be held June 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Upper Village; Grand Street and Old Post Road will be closed to car traffic for the event. SummerFest is produced and sponsored by the Croton Chamber of Commerce and organized by Dr. Greg Schmidt, chiropractor and former mayor of Croton, and Cynthia Lippolis, owner of River Towns Real Estate.
Treasures & Tales, located in Croton at 139 Grand St., has opened a new Toy Annex with write-on walls, interactive, non-toxic toys for children to test and touch—“and prices that allow you to still buy gas,” Jacobson says. For more information, call the store at 914.862.0632.
