Holiday Weekend

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 parade headlines a holiday-themed “First Friday”, Ballston Spa’s signature monthly event, which celebrates its 15th year in 2019.  Home to unique shops, artist galleries, museums, and a host of popular restaurants, Ballston Spa pulls out the stops for December’s First Friday by filling the village with a merry atmosphere.  Ballston Spa High School singers and musicians and Union Fire Company band members perform carols on the street corners. After lighting the tree, Santa Claus heads to Ballston Spa National Bank on Front Street where he visits with kids of all ages.
