Victorian Stroll In Downtown Troy NY

Downtown Troy Victorian Stroll Some community members show off their finest Victorian apparel at the annual Victorian Stroll in Downtown Troy NY.

TROY NY -- Celebrate the holidays Victorian style at the 2013 Troy Victorian Stroll, taking place on Sunday, December 8, 2013! This year, marks the 31st anniversary of the Victorian Stroll.

This popular holiday event runs from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM and has long been a heartwarming tradition for thousands of local families and visitors from all over the northeast, attracting nearly 20,000 people each year. There is even a similiar event in Saratoga Springs, NY that is just as popular.

The city of Troy closes the street to traffic for the night to allow for festive activity and street revelers, including juggling acts, carolers, entertainers, musicians and more. Father Christmas also strolls the streets, greeting festival goers as he passes. Collect some traditional keepsakes made in the Victorian mode: wooden toys and commemorative ornaments.There are ice sculptures, decorative displays and other holiday marvels, in addition to great entertainment.

Many ladies and gentlemen dress in Victorian period attire, adding to the theme of this unique holiday event. Local businesses and residences compete in holiday window decorating contests, venues offer refreshments, there are giveaways and much merriment all throughout downtown Troy NY for the Victorian Stroll throughout the day.

As evening falls on the city, Monument Square lights up with hundreds of LED bulbs in the shape of a giant Christmas tree. Though the lights are white in color, they draw less than 300 total watts, which is ‘green’ enough to satisfy even the staunchest environmentalist.

Join in the fun of Holiday contests! The annual Window Decorating Contest inspires fierce competition from the businesses in Troy. Windows are decorated with themes based on the popular children's book Snowmen at Night. Or take part in the annual Photo Contest, which is always a hit!

Come and witness the holiday magic as downtown Troy is transformed into a Victorian winter wonderland!
