The first real snow of the season began to fall Saturday as the sidewalks along lower State Street filled. Families scouted out spots and then settled into them with canvas folding chairs, blankets, containers of hot cocoa and hoods pulled way up.

A "holiday" parade with Santa Claus and a Roaring 20's theme? Only in Schenectady. There haven't been 10,000 people since Proctor's moved it from Black Friday. Since there is no Christmas/Holiday shopping nor stores Downtown it can be at any random date.
