It's already starting to look like Christmas in the Village

Start early and join the fun of decorating the Village of Ballston Spa for Christmas!

It’s going to be a very merry Christmas season in Ballston Spa. The theme this year is “A Village of Friends,” and will feature oversized gingerbread ornaments and holiday banners.

The ornaments and banners are available now at the Ballston Spa Public Library – free of charge – for decoration by children of all ages.

Also free – but limited – paint supplies are available now at the library.

All ornaments and banners are due back at the library by Saturday November 3, and will be used to decorate the Village Christmas Tree and the streets of Ballston Spa during the holiday season.

“We want to expand on what we did last year and really make this year’s tree something special. And this year, not only are we decorating the tree, but after the great response to the banners we made for the Birdhouse Competition, we’re going to make Christmas banners. The elves have been working all summer to make this a project everyone can participate in,” said local artist Mark Blech, who conceived the idea, volunteered to organize, and took the lead on designing the ornaments and banners.

The Village of Ballston Spa recognizes and thanks Curtis Lumber for their generous donation that made this project possible!
