TROY — Head to downtown Troy on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to ring in the holiday season with your family and friends during the Northeast’s largest, free holiday festival, the 34th Annual Troy Victorian Stroll. The theme for this year’s rendition of the popular event, presented by the Rensselaer County Regional Chamber of Commerce, is “Celebrating Troy’s Bicentennial.”
Take a step back in time as you casually stroll through downtown Troy’s streets, joined by revelers of all kinds in period clothing.
Check out the holiday storefront displays created for this year’s Window Decorating Contest and take a moment or two to browse through some of the city’s boutiques, where you’re guaranteed to find some unique gifts for the special people on your shopping list.
You’ll also have ample opportunities to eat, drink and be merry as you enjoy delicious cuisine and beverages while either sitting inside one of downtown Troy’s many restaurants or by grabbing a quick nibble from one of the food vendors in Monument Square before you make your way around town. There will be plenty of live entertainment on hand, too, with more than 100 live performances taking place during the course of the five hour festival.
Be sure to head back to Monument Square for 5 p.m. for the city’s tree lighting ceremony, caroling, and a special Happy Birthday sing-along to celebrate The Collar City’s bicentennial.
