Move over Tinseltown. Hollywood isn't the only place the stars are working and living anymore. More and more celebrities are not only calling Upstate New York home, but many are opening up businesses too.
Adam Savage, Director of Culinary for Spruce Hospitality, took the lead on designing the gingerbread house. He and his team have worked for months to plan and prepare for the display. Adam said, "The house is made of over 987 lbs of homemade gingerbread, 223 lbs of icing, and 152 lbs of assorted candy. The actual production and building of the display took well over 200 hours.”
The candy for the display was sourced by The Candy Space, located in the French Mountain Common Outlets and a sister company of The Queensbury. The Queensbury Hotel also partnered with the Upstate Modern Railroaders of South Glens Falls, who provided train sets for the display.
The Queensbury Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Glens Falls It was built in 1926, it is a Historic Hotel of America and is on the National Registry of Historic Places.

It's one of the most beautiful displays and amazing events in the area. It's the 48th annual Adirondack Balloon Festival and this year they will be saluting all local essential workers. Because of the pandemic, this year's Balloon Festival will look a bit different. It is recommended that spectators wear masks and in an effort to lessen crowds, there will be no food or craft vendors this year. But we will still see some of the most beautiful hot air balloons flying above the Adirondacks.
