You may remember when Saratoga Springs had beautifully painted fiberglass horses throughout the city or the giant painted fiberglass ballet slipper. The next activity that is aimed at bringing the city together has the beauty of the horses and a ballet slipper but with an added twist and a fun treasure hunt.
Buisness For Good has a project underway that will build a tavern and a cafe in the heart of an Albany County Village. These two businesses will in turn raise money for the local school sports and other programs.
If you love the board game Clue or any murder mystery, you have to pick this up this holiday season. It was created by the Saratoga Springs History Museum and benefits the organization. It's a fun game and a history lesson to boot.
Were you there? Check out Walker Hayes at Frog Alley in Schenectady for WGNA's Jingle Jam. Duo Renee and Dave from Skeeter Creek kicked off the show and Walker Hayes brought his amazing set with a little bit of storytelling in between. Proceeds from GNA's Jingle Jam benefitted Shop With a Cop which helps less fortunate families in the Capital Region go Christmas shopping for the holiday with law enforcement. Thank you GNA Nation!
How would you like to help the big guy this Christmas? Santa Claus gets inundated with letters during the Christmas season and he would love your help to get through them all. The United States Postal Service Operation Santa is underway and here's how you can make it a special holiday for underprivileged kids in New York.
It had been three years since the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolled through the Capital Region. It made three stops; Mechanicville, Saratoga Springs, and Fort Edward. The first was Mechanicville on a rainy Sunday night. This is where I enjoyed the festive holiday train. They are traveling across the country to 106 stops. At each stop, they play live music and collect donations for the local food banks. Country Artist Lindsay Ell was the musical entertainment and she was awesome. The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train also presented the Mechanicville Community Center with a check for $3500 to help restock the food bank. Even though the weather wasn't ideal, a couple of hundred families joined the fun.
It's back again this year! The home at 29 Walden Circle in Saratoga Springs in the Town of Stillwater is all decked out in over 15,000 LED lights and synchronized to holiday music. You can come and enjoy this show for free but if you wish to make a donation to a children's charity, you can do so HERE. This is truly a labor of love for these homeowners. This spectacular show runs through the new year. Check out the schedule HERE.
Each year Wreaths Across America places wreaths on veterans' graves. This includes Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetary. They need your help and donations so that these soldiers can be honored.
It is one of the most anticipated events of the holiday season. Lake George will "Lite Up The Village" this Saturday, November 26th starting at 5:30. The village will have live music, parades, fireworks, and more.
