The National Ballet of China, a national symbol and an exemplary cultural ambassador to the international community, will perform at SPAC on July 21 and 22 with tickets going on sale March 3. Accompanied by The National Ballet of China Symphony Orchestra, the company's SPAC engagement will feature the Saratoga premiere of The Peony Pavilion, the internationally-acclaimed adaptation of a classic Chinese romantic tale.

Franklin Community Center is starting off 2015 with a lofty goal: to raise $150,000 to expand its existing food pantry program. In recent years, the number of people who have been turning to the food pantry has been steadily increasing, so Franklin wants to adapt to be able to serve more residents.

The DZ Farm Meet the Chefs Event took place this past Sunday, October 12th, and I had the pleasure of attending on behalf of Saratoga.com.

After reviewing the invitation, I had a good idea of what to expect when I arrived at the farm, but reality blew out my prior expectations. The beauty of the property was completely overwhelming at first, initially making you forget where you were.

Saratoga is recognized for a variety of reasons, from horse races to spas to fine arts and music. Yet, what about a round of applause for 'toga and its vast ethnic cuisine? On October 11, Saratoga Food Fanatic and Network Saratoga are teaming up to present the FIRST annual Saratoga International Flavorfeast, giving your palate the opportunity to try something new!

If you haven't done or seen these things, then you're not doing Saratoga right. I've compiled a list of things, i.e. places to go or eat and activities to do, that I, and most of Saratoga, consider a crime if you haven't at least tried. So grab a seat and read through this list. If you find something you haven't otherwise heard of, you're welcome, because I've just made your weekend plans for you.

Brown's beach was a family favorite for many years for residents of Saratoga county, as it was one of the only public access swimming beaches with shallow water and a sandy bottom on Saratoga Lake. To everyone's dismay it was closed in 2007.

Luckily, Brown's beach was bought by the Town of Stillwater in May of last year. Since then they have been working feverishly to get the beach open and ready for visitors sometime this summer!

Swimming won't be the only attraction either! They have big plans to bring the beach back to its former glory and maybe even better!
