— Before heading to the Mid-Hudson St. Patrick’s Day Parade, join the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame in Goshen for an open-house family workshop from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 16.

Children ages 4-11 will make a lucky horseshoe mascot to bring to the parade, play horsey-themed games and take a ride on the Harness Racing 3D Simulator. Everyone is invited to enjoy traditional Irish soda bread, tea and hot chocolate.

Children will create their own parade mascot to carry and shake while watching the parade pass by the museum. When making their Lucky Horseshoe Standardbred mascot, be sure to glue on horseshoes open side up to hold in the good luck. Staff will then lead kids through a series of fun games throughout the museum. Seamus McGee, our Irish Standardbred mascot, will make an appearance, so bring your camera and take pictures with the kids. Cross the finish line with an exciting ride on the Harness Racing 3D Simulator.

All paid participants may enter a drawing to win a prize.

This is an open-house event. No reservations are necessary. The cost is $3 per child (adults are free). After the workshop, stake out a spot for the parade, which begins at 2 p.m.

The museum is located at 240 Main St.. For further information call 294-6330 or e-mail education@harnessmuseum.com.
