The Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association is excited to announce our annual Ballston Spa Holiday Parade is scheduled for Friday, December 3 at 6:30pm in the beautiful Village of Ballston Spa.
After an abbreviated Neighborhood Parade during the pandemic last year, we are thrilled to be back! The Holiday Parade Committee has been hard at work to make 2021’s parade a great success.
**NEW THIS YEAR*** We are excited to announce a new feature to the Ballston Spa Holiday Parade! We want you to deck the halls of your floats, walkers give us that jingle jangle feeling, fire trucks give us a light show! Parade entries this year will be judged and we will have winners in the following categories:
Best Emergency Vehicle
Best Ballston Spa Community Members Entry
Best Walking Entry
Brightest Light Award
Entries will be judged by BSBPA Board Members and judges' decisions are final. The brighter and merrier the better! Winners in each category receive bragging rights and prime line-up spots in next year’s Holiday Parade. Have fun with it!
The parade will step off on Milton Ave at 6:30 near the intersection of Milton Ave and South Street and will follow Milton to the intersection of East High Street. After the parade, you are invited to gather it Wiswall Park to watch Santa light the Christmas Tree from the bucket of the Eagle Matt-Lee Fire Station ladder truck.
