County to host drive-in Holiday ‘Car-aoke’ for seniors at Bowdoin Park

The county announced a free Holiday “Car-aoke” event to be held on Tues., Dec. 15, beginning at 1 pm at Bowdoin Park. The event will provide seniors physically distanced socialization with staff and volunteers in a safe and festive atmosphere.

Bowdoin Park is at 85 Sheafe Road in Poughkeepsie. Space is limited for this special event, and seniors must register by calling 845-486-2555.

The event is part of the Office for the Aging’s re-imagining of gatherings to keep seniors engaged through a combination of socially distanced events and virtual activities that follow COVID-19 guidelines and protocols.

Upon arrival at Bowdoin Park, seniors will be directed to park their cars adjacent to Pavilion 1, where they’ll receive complimentary hot cider and holiday cookies. Musician Ray Watkins will play holiday music, which will be broadcast for seniors to listen to through their car radio and sing along.

Between songs, OFA staff hold holiday trivia contests, offering seniors the chance to play for fun and prizes.

The rain date for this event is Thurs., Dec. 17 at 1 pm.
