Waes hael, or, to your health! The 19th annual spring Wassail Balkan Dance Party returns to Breezy Hill Orchard in Staatsburg on May 9 from 2pm until your dancing feet give out. A 12-piece Balkan brass band and Macedonian Romani musician Romski Boji are playing live Balkan music. Steve Kotansky will lead a Balkan dance workshop, and Bulgarian dance group Bosilek will perform, as well as Bill and Livia Vanaver and the Vanaver Caravan. A lamb roast with other traditional Balkan cuisine will sate your appetite and a variety of hard cider tastings will quench your thirst. The traditional Celtic ritual of "Sing to the Trees" will be held beneath the spring blossoms of Breezy Hill Orchard's organic apple trees. Stay for the day or sleep through the night under the stars. (845) 266-3979; Hudsonvalleyfarmhousecider.com.
