Sometimes it's nice to plan a Thanksgiving dinner out at a restaurant in Saratoga instead of dealing with the meal preparation yourself ...and other times, it's just nice to have a back-up plan when things don't go as expected at home!
Whatever your reason for wanting to dine out this Thanksgiving Day, you're in luck!
Halloween is a fun time of the year for everyone, but sometimes it can get a little too spooky for the little ones. Ellms Family Farm offers a Halloween Hayride that totally kid-friendly and Saratoga.com is giving away a 4 pack of tickets each Thursday until Oct 25!
Thanks to a group of concerned citizens, the annual Saratoga Memorial Day parade is officially back on for 2012 and scheduled to take place Monday, May 28.
Last week, the cancellation of the annual parade made national news. After hearing that the parade would be cancelled for 2012 because of funding and participation concerns, Paul Brisson of Milton, NY took action and created a fundraising effort on Facebook.
If you are currently in the military or a veteran and plan on taking a train ride this Memorial Day weekend, then you won't have to worry about paying. The Saratoga & North Creek Railway is offering free train rides to all veterans and active military.

Darkness has set, and children in their pajamas board a magical train on a frosty holiday evening, anticipating the adventure that awaits them.
The train conductor punches a hole in their golden tickets, which bear the name of the train, "The Polar Express." Cheery music plays as the train's chefs do a merry dance while delivering hot cocoa and cookies for every child, and the doubting hobo wanders around the train.
The destination is the bright and mystical North Pole, where holiday magic is in the air, and Santa and his elves climb aboard. Santa delivers a silver bell to each child, which only rings if they believe. The elves join in the merriment, singing Christmas carols, as the magic of the season comes to life for every boy and girl.
It may sound like a scene from a movie (and actually, it is), but for the first time, children will be able to experience this adventure first hand in Saratoga Springs this holiday season. Throughout November and December, the Polar Express story is being brought to life by the Saratoga North Creek Railroad without missing a single one of the important details above.
