Saratoga Victorian Street Walk - Let the Season Begin!

The Victorian Street Walk took place last night. It's an annual city celebration of our Victorian heritage! Broadway is made into a pedestrian mall for a few hours. It is soooo much fun to be able to walk in the middle of the street!

The lights are wonderful. The weather was perfect - cold but not too cold. A few snowflakes would have been nice, but we can't have it all!


There is a festival of trees with hundreds of decorated Christmas trees.


Here is my little elf having some hot chocolate in-between singing duties at the Living Nativity.



Father Christmas made an appearance!


And his reindeer of course!


Our friend Carter doing his boogie thing to the music!


The great band playing in the pharmacy!


The wonder of an ice sculpture!


This was great - it is two Civil War reenactors walking down the street singing a drunken song!


It was a beautiful night - let the Christmas season begin!

It is a little unusual that you don't have snow, right?

Very quaint. :) What a fun way to start the season off! Father Christmas looked perfect.
