The Ho Ho Holidays are Coming to The Springs

Ever the seasonal environment, The Springs (224 Franklin Street) is outdoorsy and breezy in summer, spooky and haunted come fall, and soon its halls will be decked out for the holidays. Bringing back its iconic take on a winter wonderland, The Springs will transform into its Ho Ho Holiday Lounge from December 5 through January 1.

The pop-up lounge will get visitors and barflies into the holiday spirit with its colorful decorations, cozy fireplaces, and festive cocktails. Greg’s Trees will be located in the famous and expansive backyard, which will also become a Santa Land complete with a magical sled that is Instagram ready.

If you need to tell Santa your wish list, Mr. Claus will be swinging by on December 5 from 5 –8 PM. Greg’s tree owner Greg Walsh will bring his complete line of holiday goodies, including the largest variety of Christmas trees in the city with Fraser Fir, Noble Fir, Nordmann Fir, Balsam Fir, and the exquisite Silver Fir. Later in the month, on December 20 at approximately 8:30 PM, the Evergreenpoint Carolers will sing at The Springs to ring in the season.
