OK, so you’re wondering what “Sinterklaas” is, right? Well, Google it and you’ll find out that it’s a Dutch Christmas tradition but you need to watch this this video to feel the spirit that the Rhinebeck community has put into the celebration.
The Rhinebeck, NY, Sinterklaas Parade is a huge demonstration of community participation yet although I live in the neighboring town of Pine Plains I had never heard of it until a friend casually mentioned it a few days before. That says something about the communications situation around here so I shot the parade in its entirety for the record. I hope this gives it some exposure.
