Hefestus Iron Pour 

click to enlarge sl_hefestus_683.jpg

It's getting hot and heavy in Beacon this spring. The second annual Hefestus festival is returning on May 23 for a full day of iron casting, sculpting, and metalwork, with live music, food, and drinks. Trained professionals will be pouring several thousand pounds of molten iron at the former Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry on Hanna Lane to showcase the foundry's history and the suspense and excitement that goes into metalwork. Fire, steam, and full body protection create an intense atmosphere, with 3,000-degree molten iron being poured and prodded by teams, the audience looking on from a safe distance. Visitors are given scratch molds at carving stations (first come, first served) to create their own designs. (845) 231-6100; Hefestusironpour.com.
