Cold Spring by Candlelight: Holiday Festival and House Tours is set for Saturday, Dec. 7, from noon to 5 p.m. in Cold Spring.
Cold Spring by Candlelight, celebrating its 11th anniversary, is a day and evening event with tours of 13 unique and historic houses and sites in the Village of Cold Spring. Stores and shops will be open late for holiday shopping and village restaurants will offer specials to attendees. The event includes street-side carolers, holiday music concerts, a craft fair, visits from Old St. Nick and ice carving demonstrations.
All proceeds from the event go to Partners with PARC, which provides funding to programs and services for children and adults with developmental disabilities throughout Putnam County.
“This tour is a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season with friends and family,” said Rand Bridget Otten, director of development for Partners with PARC. “And in the spirit of giving, all proceeds support children and adults with developmental disabilities.”
This is a self-guided walking tour. Two trolleys will run throughout the day to accommodate tour attendees and visitors. The holiday craft fair runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the village’s annual holiday tree lighting and visit from St. Nick starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Riverfront Gazebo.
