Victorian Streetwalk - 26th Annual
Victorian Streetwalk - 26th Annual
Thursday, November 29, 2012

Thursday night, November 29, 2012 is the 26th Annual Victorian Streetwalk brought to you by the Saratoga Springs Downtown Business Association in downtown Saratoga Springs from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Broadway will close once again from 5:00 to 10:00 from the Route 50 arterial to the Spring Street intersection.

CDTA, a festival Gold Sponsor, is running free shuttle buses every 20 minutes from the Empire State College parking lot at 111 West Avenue on Saratoga Springs’ west side, the Oklahoma track (just off Exit 14 of I-87) 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 until 10:30.

There are over 50 sites with free entertainment, including The Christian Brothers Academy Marching Band, fiddlers, hammered dulcimer, a cappella singing, choral singing, saxophone, crystal glasses, accordion, balloons, ballet dancers, live reindeer, Santa and Mrs. Claus, Festival of Trees at the City Center, a Toys for Tots Drive in front of G. Willikers, face painting, Newfoundland dogs, and the list goes on and on.

New this year is Matt Casson who is a winner of the famed John Lennon Songwriting Contest, was a musical guest on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, has appeared on “The View” and is playing at the Wine Bar. Have a group photo taken at Impressions with A Victorian Print Giveaway. Nacre Dance will be performing “Waltz of the Flowers” and “Moving Bell Choir” three times at the Universal Preservation Hall; Friends of the Military Museum will have the 77th Regimental Balladeers & the Rural Felicity Fife & Drum Corps at the Museum and a photo booth will be taking holiday photos at Anastasia’s Photography above Mimosa Gallery at 489 Broadway, and we are hoping to have a Noah’s Ark.

Santa & Mrs. Claus arrive at the Santa Cottage at 6 p.m. to visit with children in the beautiful, hand made and detailed Santa Cottage that is set up in front of Putnam Market, just across from Caroline Street. Special Victorian Streetwalk postal cancellations are available at the Broadway Post Office from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Limited edition commemorative posters may be purchased ($5 each). Bring your stamped Christmas card envelopes, get them canceled with the special Victorian Streetwalk cancellation (free) and you have a month to mail them.

The Canfield Casino will have the Historical Society gift shop open. Most businesses will be open until 10 p.m. and will hold open houses and serve delicious, free refreshments to their guests, friends and customers.

The Victorian Streetwalk is the Downtown Business Association'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 as it used to be" street party and celebration of the holiday season.
