It’s Time to “Lite Up” Your Night With Holiday Cheer

On Saturday, November 30, 2019, Lake George Village will transform as over 10,000 lights throughout Shepard Park and the Village are turned on all at once, bringing holiday cheer to families and visitors.

2019 Lite Up the Village

Lite Up the Village has become the community’s premier holiday tradition, attracting more than 3,000 people to the village last year with even more expected in 2019.

All the festivities are free to attend, and the event will begin at 3 pm in Shepard Park with horse-drawn carriage rides and refreshments.

At 5 pm, Bobby Dick and Susie Q will host their family-friendly holiday sing-along. Also at 5 pm will be the first annual Ugly Sweater Contest, which will be held at the Shepard Park Amphitheatre. The winner will take home a $250 prize, while runners up will be awarded trophies.

At approximately 6 pm, everyone will gather in Shepard Park to count down to the lighting of thousands of light displays. Soon after, a spectacular fireworks show over the lake will light up the night sky. The holiday season has officially begun!

Enjoy the 2019 Lighted Fire Truck Parade & Festivities

Lite Up the Village doesn’t end after the holiday light displays are turned on. Make your way to Canada Street for the 3rd annual Holiday Lighted Fire Truck Parade. Come see all the colorfully decorated vehicles from local fire companies as they compete for cash prizes.

Not only that, but Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will make their grand entrance in Lake George during the parade. When the parade ends, kids can meet Santa at the Lake George Firehouse and tell him their Christmas list.

Lite Up the Village is one of the most anticipated holiday events in Lake George. For more information on this celebration, call the Village of Lake George at (518) 668-5771.
