Ho Ho Hometown Holidays is coming to town again this year on December 2! Stroll the city streets and get transported to a winter wonderland filled with Santa and Mrs. Claus, reindeer, carolers and more.

The annual tree lighting ceremony kicks off at 5:45 p.m. with DeeJay DuBray as our MC, plus Santa Claus, Mayor Jack Diamond, and carolers from Glens Falls Community Theatre. Stores will be open for holiday shopping - be sure to bring your list! Keep the holiday spirit going all through the night by mingling with costumed characters, reading Santa your wishlist and listening to carolers with a cup of hot cocoa in hand. 

After The Tree Lighting

Horse and carriage rides!

We hope to see you there!
