SARATOGA SPRINGS – Festivities for the 36th Annual Victorian Streetwalk Weekend extend through Sunday, Dec. 4.
Following Thursday night’s Tree Lighting ceremony and the arrival of Mr. & Mrs. Claus to their Broadway cottage, the event - presented by the Downtown Business Association - features live music and strolling performers along Broadway through the weekend.
“I think offering events like the Victorian Streetwalk creates nostalgia in our community. This is why people come here year after year, to dine, shop and spend their money here to enjoy the city and feel like they can take part of that charm with them,” said Violet’s of Saratoga owner Laura Pileckas, whose North Broadway shop was charged with styling event headliner Madison Vandenburg.
“I thought it was a great opportunity to participate in the Victorian Streetwalk, and what better way to do it than dress as the headliner for the event,” Pileckas said. “Madison is not just a talented performer, it was wonderful to get to know her better while styling her. She has a warm, inviting, and sweet personality.”
Events take place 5-8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2-3, and 12 – 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4. Santa invites children to leave their Christmas lists and notes for Santa at Santa’s Cottage, located in front of Putnam Market.
