That's what you do on the last Thursday of November in Saratoga Springs. For the Victorian Walk.
Shop owners in Victorian garb like Dave Barker of Impressions in his cape, top hat and cane. Marching bands (next year they' may learn Little Drummer Boy), carolers on most corners, hot cocoa and Broadway closed to traffic.
The Racing City Chorus was serenading visitors from the balcony of the Adirondack Trust office, Santa playing his sax was a big attraction and the reindeer were corralled by Santa's own little hut in front of the Roohan Building.
Ballet dancers in the window of Paper Dolls pirouetted and further south on Broadway the Pokingbrook Morris Dancers in medieval attire performed jigs, caroles and Morris dances.
Good weather attracted record crowd and parking was at a premium. Heard one stroller say, I'm two miles away from my car. Worth the walk.
