All through the year, the Village of Ballston Spa welcomes each month with celebration on the First Friday. For December, this is the day of the holiday parade allowing local organizations and businesses to come together and march downtown to Front Street to celebrate the holidays, and as an escort for Santa who will oversee the lighting of the Christmas tree in Wiswell Park.
The parade isn’t the whole celebration of course. Every year, musicians young and old take to the streets to bring forth the festiveness while everyone’s preparing for the parade to start.
If you want to see some other examples of non parade festiveness in Ballston Spa, January’s First Friday is on the Second.
