Holiday spirit was out in full force at the 31st annual Victorian Streetwalk, held on Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs on Nov. 30.

The evening began with a tree lighting by Mayor Joanne Yepsen that was attended by Santa and Mrs. Claus, who arrived by horse-drawn carriage.

After, the night dissolved into a street party, with food and entertainment every few steps. Ballerinas stood poised in storefront windows and blue balloons advertising the Home Made Theater’s A Christmas Carol floated up to the sky. Sax-O-Claus roamed the streets, jazzing up classic Christmas tunes.

Other entertainers on the night’s docket included Saratoga Abundant Life Church, performing outside the City Center; The Ginley Girls (see Saratoga Living‘s Track story), performing with the Spurs USA; and the Victorian Stilt Walking Juggler.

The Saratoga Festival of Trees in the City Center was also open for Streetwalk attendees to get a break from the cold. More than 250 trees and other holiday items were on display.

The Festival of Trees will remain open until Dec. 3.
