Mayor Joanne Yepsen will light the tree at 6pm. Santa, Clara, elves, and Rumple Dumple will visit with children throughout the evening in the beautiful Santa Cottage that was renovated by the students at the F. Donald Myers Education Center Construction Trades Program.

The Saratoga City Ballet and Octavo Singers will also be delighting audiences of all ages as they combine talents at the Universal Preservation Hall.

Broadway will be closed from 5pm to 9pm from the Route 50 arterial to the Spring Street intersection.
