Wurtsboro's fling with spring

By Patricio Robayo - sports & life editor

Ducks rushed down Sullivan Street during the Wurtsboro Spring Fling's main event.
WURTSBORO — The scene on Sullivan Street in Wurtsboro saw water rushing down as colors of yellow, pink and blue swam towards Veteran Park with a cheering crowd for the annual Duck Race at the Wurtsboro Spring Fling.
Spring seemed to finally arrive and Wurtsboro used the fling to officially kick off the season. Organized by the Wurtsboro Board of Trade, the event hosted numerous events such as a treasure hunt that included many businesses. Kids and adults were given treasure maps and were encouraged to check in at the local stores to win prizes at the end of the day.
Festival favorites included a petting zoo and bounce house along with plant pot painting and air brush tattoos.
As the country music blared from the P.
A. system, kids used their skateboards to traverse the foot traffic along Sullivan Street.
Hot dogs and baked goods were being sold at the Board of Trade spring plants table where residents got a jump start on their gardens.
If you needed something to be repaired, then the library was the place to be at the Wurtsboro Spring Fling. Tables were set up and ready to take on anything frombracelets to lamps, radios, bicycles and everything in between.
“If we can't fix it here, then we have sent it somewhere,” said Gary Dudd.
The Wurtsboro Fire Auxiliary opened their doors for a Tricky Tray where people were able to buy raffle tickets for gifts.
The Wurtsboro Art Alliance hosted an open house that included a host of children's crafts tables and handmade gifts for the adults.
Additionally, there was a live bird show that was given by the Ravensbeard and was sponsored by the Basha Kill Area Association.
