KINGSTON, NY - On Friday, December 6th from 5-8pm, the Kingston Uptown Business Association (KUBA)presents The Snowflake Festival: A Season Celebrating Community Giving.
The Festival will feature special performance events, quality time with Santa and his Elves, horse and buggy rides, a Holiday Treasure Map for children with stocking stuffers along the way, Holiday treats, shopping in Uptown stores and more! All the while, Uptown restaurants will be spreading Holiday cheer by serving heart-warming and belly-filling meals – make your reservations early!
The Holiday Parade begins at 5pm at Dietz Stadium, and includes Santa Claus himself, great musical acts, and numerous surprises. The Parade will continue up North Front Street to Fair Street, down Main Street, and then onto Wall Street, concluding with a Holiday Tree Lighting led by Kingston Mayor Shayne Gallo at the intersection of Wall and North Front Streets.
The 2013 Light of Kingston Grand Marshall will be Effie Larios. The Snowflake Festival’s Season of Community Giving will recognize Mrs. Larios for her many years of service in the community.
In the spirit of giving, the Snowflake Festival will recognize and partner with three charities this Holiday season: New Coats for Kids (pre-K to 12), People’s Place and Snowbound Meals for Kids. Donation areas for each of these charities will be set up at various venues along the Parade Route.
Sponsored by KUBA in partnership with Manetti, Manetti and O’Connor and Basch and Keagan, LLP, The Snowflake Festival will be a fun family event to ring in the Yuletide, and a great way to give back to the community.
