IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS 2Here are a few other holiday offerings in the great New York State Capital Region.
The Albany Police Department PAL Capital Holiday Lights in Washington Park
This fun and festive holiday light display is a yearly event. A fun night, just drive through the park and enjoy the amazing light show.
The beautiful Washington Park Lake House. The Spanish Revival structure with an outdoor stage is home to the Park Playhouse, who have been offering free outdoor theater for 21 years.
Lights on the Playhouse seats.
And, more lights.
And, yet there are more and more and more lights!
Another great annual event is The Christmas Craft Fair at The Shaker Heritage Society in Colonie.
Mother Ann Lee and her followers founded Watervliet (as is was known then) in 1776. The village is owned by the Town of Colonie and some of the land is used as a DPW base, but it is still a vibrant educational facility and they hold great events.
The Capital Region is home to two great Victorian Strolls. Troy offers a stroll and Saratoga a Street Walk. Take a peek.
The Troy Victorian Stroll has to include Uncle Sam. Troy is his home and he is buried in historic Oakwood Cemetery.
I love this picture.
Pretty Victoria Ladies and Dapper Gents strolling Troy's quaint streets.
More lovely Victorians.
And one very special guest.
The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall dressed up for the holidays.
And of course the trial of the century that was held at the county courthouse during the Stroll.
On to Saratoga for the Street Walk, with another special guest.
While Troy holds their Stroll on a Sunday afternoon, Saratoga holds their Walk on a week night which gives in a different feel.
And pretty Winter streetscape.
I hope you enjoyed the quick and abbreviated trip through some of my hometown's holiday fun.
