|About Our Beautiful Queen Village - Camden, NY|
This little village is definitely something out of fairy tale land! The homes are mostly Victorian in style, and often there are some very special homes to be had for great prices!
In the center of the village is our village park. There you will see patches of green lawn, beds of flowers, a memorial stone, benches, stately trees, and our quaint gazebo where most of our village socials and events are held. Many evenings throughout the summer we are able to enjoy performances by area bands. The kids especially love the dancing tunes! It’s so cute to see the little ones arm in arm dancing in circles around the lawn.
Two or three times per year, we have large celebrations with parades down main street. You never know what kind of float you might see with all of the great talent around here ;)
During the Autumn season, you may hear the fire whistle going off a few to many times. This is our signal that rides are being given down at the fire house. While we’re waiting for our turn to ride atop the fire engine, free juice & doughnuts are served. It’s a great time to catch up on all of your visiting with the town folks, as well as a great way to celebrate fire prevention week.
Each Christmas Santa comes to the Queen Village in a horse drawn wagon (I think their jingle bells must be one of my favorite Christmas sounds!). As the horses take us through the village streets, our carols are accompanied by villagers who are putting the finishing touches on their holiday decorations. On this night, we all gather around the manger scene and sing Christmas carols, while we enjoy the sights and sounds of the season over hot chocolate and doughnuts.The thousands of little lights that encircle the trees, light poles, and street lamps are especially beautiful with a blanket of freshly fallen snow! Ever planted in our memories, are those joyful evenings spent with family and friends. We just love the 5th season of the year! What? You didn't know there were 5 seasons? Well, around here folks call us "The Village With 5 Seasons", because we celebrate Christmas in such a big way.
Our little library sits on the corner of my street. On cold winter days, you’ll find some rocking chairs pulled up to the big fireplace for a day of quiet lazy reading. The walls are always decorated with the work of local artisans.
One of my children's favorite winter pastimes, is to go across the street to the "hill." This is where we go sledding, tubing, and snowboarding. It's a great way to spend time with the kids after a big snow. Of course, after all that "work" we need to come home & enjoy some hot coco beside the wood stove ;) And while I'm on the subject, there's something truly romantic about a night so cold, that the smoke from every village chimney is almost frozen in time - all of this against a backdrop of the full winter moon!
It's wonderful to be a part of a small community where folks truly care about each other & work together for the good of all. We love our little village & want to share it with you! We will continue to bring you life as it happens here in The Queen Village.
