The Saratoga Springs Downtown Business Association is excited to announce the 29th Annual Victorian Streetwalk on Thursday, December 3rd. Get all the details:
The Saratoga DBA will kick off the evening with the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in front of Putnam Market at 6:00 PM. Girl Scouts will serenade the crowd with Christmas Carols while children wait for Santa and Mrs. Claus to make an appearance. The Honorable Mayor Joanne Yepsen will light the trees at 6:00 PM and Santa, along with his many elves, will arrive at the Santa Cottage shortly after to visit with children in the beautiful, handmade Santa Cottage set up in front of Putnam Market.
There will be over 35 sites with free entertainment, including fiddlers, hammered dulcimer, a cappella singing, choral singing, ballet dancers, live reindeers and more! Nacre Dance Company and Octavo Singers will delight audiences of all ages as they combine talents at the Universal Preservation Hall at 7:30 PM and 8:15 PM.
The Victorian Streetwalk is the DBA’s way of saying “thank you” to all our customers for supporting our beautiful downtown throughout the year. Everyone is invited to join the fun with caroling and Victorian costumes and enjoy an old fashioned Christmas street party and celebration of the holiday season!
Broadway will close on December 3rd from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM from the Route 50 arterial to the Spring Street intersection for the Victorian Streetwalk.
CDTA, a festival Gold Sponsor, will run free shuttle buses every 20 minutes from the Empire State College parking lot on Saratoga Springs’ west side, Silver Sponsor NYRA’s Oklahoma track and the Weible Avenue Skating Rink parking lots on the east side of Saratoga Springs to downtown, bringing carloads of people to and from the Victorian Streetwalk from 4:30 PM to 10:30 PM.
We hope to see you there!
