Ugly Holiday Sweaters will be in fashion at Lake George Village’s annual “Lite Up the Village” on Saturday, November 30th.
The Village will be hosting its first ever Ugly Sweater Contest during the live music show on Saturday afternoon at 5:00pm. Contestants will compete for cash prizes at the Shepard Park Amphitheater. Judges will award $250 to the winner and trophies to the runner-ups.
Horse-drawn hay rides, live music by Bobby & Susie Dick and a variety of refreshments will also be served in the Village park prior to the lighting ceremony at 6pm followed by a fireworks show.
This year’s Firematic Holiday Lighting Parade is expected to draw thousands to the Village with Santa Claus arriving on the local fire trucks.
The Lake George Community Band will perform traditional holiday music at the Lake George Firehouse where Santa will greet all the children. The Lake George Fire Department Auxiliary will provide free refreshments as well.
Parade awards will be presented at the Lake George American Legion to the winning departments as well as those traveling the longest distance.
Last year’s event drew over 3,000 spectators to the Village with Bay Ridge Fire Company winning the top parade award.
Many of the Village stores and restaurants will be offering specials all day prior to the illumination of over 10,000 holiday lights throughout the Village.
