The pa­rade is a home­town­style 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 that night, go to www.ball­ston. org to reg­is­ter, or con­tact the BSBPA of­fice 518 885-2772 or [email protected]­ston. org. 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, 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. Many busi­nesses will be open with spe­cial hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties and spe­cials, while lo­cal churches plan mu­si­cal per­for­mances that evening. Ball­ston Spa High School singers and mu­si­cians and Union Fire Com­pany band mem­bers per­form carols on the street cor­ners. After light­ing the vil­lage Christ­mas tree, Santa Claus heads to Ball­ston Spa Na­tional Bank on Front Street where he vis­its with kids of all ages. Ad­di­tion­ally, a com­mu­nity art project “A Vil­lage of Friends” will fea­ture painted ban­ners and posters by res­i­dents young and old dis­played on lamp­posts and in store­fronts through­out the vil­lage. SARATOGA CHIL­DREN’S THEATRE: Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky sto­ries, Roald Dahl’s James and the Gi­ant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this “mas­terpeach” of a tale. Fea­tur­ing a wickedly tune­ful score and a witty and charm­ing book, this ad­ven­tur­ous mu­si­cal about courage and self-dis­cov­ery is des­tined to be a clas­sic.
