The Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association’s annual Ballston Spa Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting takes place, Friday, December 6. The step off time is 6:30 pm, proceeding on Milton Avenue and ending in Wiswall Park on Front Street with Santa lighting the Christmas tree. The parade has become a hometown-style holiday tradition, with fire trucks, floats, animals, kids and Santa parading down the main street of the village. Once again this year, the parade will spotlight the Toys for Tots campaign, in partnership with the Ballston Spa Community Emergency Corps, Saratoga County Sheriff Department and U.S. Marine Corps. Volunteers from these organizations will be on hand to collect donations of new, unwrapped toys from spectators along the parade route as well as at the tree lighting. The Holiday Parade is a true community event so parade participants are welcome. If your organization, group or business would like to take part in the parade, you MUST register by fully completing and submitting the form below . Only groups registered by Monday, December 2 can participate.
For those with floats and/or vehicles, please note that, due to the increasing number of these, we are running out of room to line up, therefore groups are allowed only up to TWO vehicles each. This can include two separate cars/vehicles operating under their own power OR one float being pulled by another vehicle. Please plan accordingly.
