Does your phone have a cupcake emoji? Because ours does not, and you'll need one this weekend! We're expecting thousands of people to come into Beacon on Saturday to see the Cupcake Wars and experience the Cupcake Festival, happening on the East End of Beacon near the mountain. Read our full report, with pictures, on how it went last year.
If we had an emoji message for you, it would be: 🍡 🍰 🦄 ☕️ 🌷 😍
Whether you find yourself indulging in some cupcakes at this year's Cupcake Festival or burning them off at the Hard Cider Run in Warwick - it will be a good weekend to be outside, especially with the Spring plant sale, river cleanup and food events happening! See everything below.

Recognize this face? It's Julia from Luxe Optique! When she's not working your paperwork and finding you frames, she's the star of much of Luxe Optique's fashion photography. These Thom Brownes are one of her favorite styles. Stop by any day of the week to try them on. 😎
This bride is wearing a Lillian West gown, as its simple elegance against the mountainous backdrop of Lambs Hill makes a big impact. You'll find Lillian West gowns at Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique at 1 East Main - near Trax Coffee Roasters! Come in to take a peek inside the boutique.
Look for our friends - The Blushery - at this year's Cupcake Festival! The owner, Stephanie, will have a table outside on the sidewalk. See her for your makeup needs and brow waxing! For more, check out A Little Beacon Blog's Beauty Guide!

When you buy a home, it's common to experience feelings after the initial baby step excitement, like "Ohmygosh, I love this home!" which (fingers crossed!) turns into "Ohmygosh, they accepted my offer!" Working with Rhinebeck Bank to finance your home can help set that nervous excitement at ease once you move forward with purchasing. Just hear what these happy homeowners had to say after closing on their home: "What an adventure this whole crazy home-buying process has been! You calmed the wild mortgage jungles with grace, patience, and expertise, helping us navigate through the financial waters... Thank you for everything!" Read about their success story here >
