One of the biggest perks of living in one of our Saratoga Springs residences is being right in the city’s center, with easy access to the events the area offers. With Galentine’s Day fast approaching, we thought some of our tenants could use a list of the upcoming holiday events to take advantage of. For those who don’t know, Galentine’s Day is on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s Day, when women dedicate the day to showing love to their female friends. The unofficial holiday was created in 2010 by the character of Leslie Knope from NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” and in her immortal words, Galentine’s Day is “…wonderful, and it should be a national holiday.” Since then, many people have treated the day as an actual holiday. This year, the Saratoga Springs area has many events planned around Galentine’s Day, so you have your pick of activities!
