Festive greenery

The arrival of St Nicolaas parading down Broadway in Schuylerville on his traditional white horse is a beloved part of that community's Festival of Trees.

The arrival of St Nicolaas parading down Broadway in Schuylerville on his traditional white horse is a beloved part of that community's Festival of Trees.

“Instead of selling the trees, we are selling ornaments as a package instead,” she said.

Each tree will be decorated with a theme, and Watson said a picture will be included to capture the design.

“This allows the person to re-create the décor at home,” she said.

Jerry Bradley, owner of Saratoga Notecards in Saratoga Springs, said the tree he created for the festival will be covered with little art easel ornaments decorated with pictures of Round Lake Village.

Watson is decorating two trees for the festival – an Adirondack-themed tree and a tree she calls “Birds of a Feather.”

“It allows me to be creative and give back to the community,” Watson said. “It’s a feel-good feeling.”

In addition to the tree display, the Village of Round Lake will host a “cookie walk,” where cookies will be available for sale by the pound, and on Friday night, Santa will arrive and the village’s Victorian tree will be lit.
