The parade will be populated by firetrucks and rescue vehicles from several local fire departments, as well as carolers from regional organizations, and parade-stopping performances from KJ's Gymnastics. A classical feature of Valatie's winter parade is Santa Claus riding through the village on his sleigh.   

The Grand Marshall of this year's 2016 Winter Parade iwill be announced shortly.

A variety of live musical performances will include rock'n'roll by The Reverberators; Singer-Songwriter Abby Lappen, Jazz&Pop vocalist, Liv Waters guitar and vocals as well as acoustic blues by Amy Ryan, and acoustic folk-rock, Americana and classic rock by 'Inflatable Elvis' aka Rob Picola.

Carolers will meander at various indoor and outdoor venues during the evening's festivities!

Santa will park his sleigh for the evening at the Valatie Community Theatre on Main Street, where he will listen to kids’ Wish Lists. Heldeberg Marionettes and Roger the Jesterwill entertain kids at the Senior Center, where Carapace Farm Puppetry will give two live performances of The Shoemakers and the Elves, their new holiday production. Village shops are open teeming with homemade cookies, roasted chestnuts and other holiday goodies.

St. Luke's Lutheran Church will present a Living Nativity in the village on the lawn of the landmark First Presbyterian Church of Valatie.
Snap some pictures with Santa and winter-time views of our fabulous waterfalls, and do some holiday shopping with our artisans and the eclectic mix of stores in our charming and historic village.
