Events to a T reprises its successful Holiday Festival of Lights along Canada Street in Lake George, from Nov. 27 to Dec. 31.
Visitors and locals alike can see decorated storefronts on Canada Street and a huge light display in Shepard’s Park in Lake George. There is no cost for the event.
“The lights are best enjoyed when it’s dark out, after 5 p.m.,” said organizer Letizia Mastrantoni, owner of Events to a T. “Many businesses have pledged to remain open for extended hours this December and especially on weekends. Several area hotels are offering packages for overnight stays at family-friendly pricing. You can enjoy the lights by walking or driving by.”
