Dreams Park update opens tourism season

Dreams Park update opens tourism season

By KEVIN LIMITI• Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

The summer tourism season begins Memorial Day weekend, with businesses and attractions getting set for a better year now that COVID is beginning to dissipate.

After a run of team cancellations earlier in the year, the Dreams Park baseball camp announced new protocols Monday, May 24.

The baseball camp in Hartwick Seminary will open Friday, July 23, with no restrictions on social distancing or mask wearing. However, they will be requiring a vaccine for all participating children and adults.

Dreams Park said on their website that the 2021 season would be the “first step toward a full reopening in 2022.”

Todd Kenyon, director of communications at the Fenimore Art Museum, said that he was optimistic about the upcoming summer and fall seasons.

“There’s always the unknown, but I can feel that people want to get out,” Kenyon said. “I’m hopeful they visit Cooperstown.”

SPRINGFIELD CENTER – Noel Dries, who played an important role in the overall establishment and maintenance of Hyde Hall, passed away unexpectedly Monday morning, Feb. 8, 2021. A life-long resident of Cary Mede, Town of Springfield, he was 82.

A teacher, historian, and tireless researcher and well-loved Springfield resident, he was born May 30, 1938, at what was then a tiny Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown.

He was the only child of Frank Lawrence Dries, Jr., and the former Ruth Margaret Kelly. His mother’s family went back several generations in Springfield, while his father, who was from Brooklyn, came to the Springfield area during the Depression and worked at Cary Mede as a groundskeeper.

In Thriller, Frankenstein

Born At Hyde Hall

By CHRYSTAL SAVAGE • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

Star Alix Wilton Regan in a particularly horrifying moment in “A Nightmare Wakes,” filmed at Hyde Hall.

A Shudder original, “A Nightmare Wakes,” premieres Feb. 4 on the horror-thriller-supernatural streaming platform.

The short was filmed at the Hyde Hall National Landmark on Otsego Lake by Wild Obscura, a “by/for/about women” producer.

Directed and written by Nora Unkel, the 90-minute film follows author Mary Shelley “as she creates her masterpiece (Frankenstein), she gives birth to a monster,” the IMDb page reads.

Shudder describes itself as “a subscription service for the horror, thriller and suspense genres.”

Alix Wilton Regan stars in the film as Shelley alongside Giullian Yao Gioiello, Philippe Bowgen and a host of Cooperstown talent.
