WATERTOWN — A North Country Festival of Trees is again lighting up for the holidays this year under the theme “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

Viewing dates for the festival are today through the Sunday and Dec. 1 through 4.

There are more than 80 trees in the former Bon-Ton space in the Salmon Run Mall this year, including 11 trees from local schools.

There will also be a number of school music, choral and dance groups performing during the live viewing. The Watertown YMCA has partnered with more than 80 local sponsors to hold the holiday event in person this year, including main sponsors FX Caprara Honda and Apogee Physicians.

April Young, director of resource development and marketing at the Watertown YMCA, said there have been some “incredible trees” decorated this year.

“We couldn’t do it without the volunteers that help at the Festival. There’s a lot of moving pieces that go into putting this on,” she said.

During the live viewing events at the mall, people can purchase raffle tickets to set in front of their favorite school-decorated trees. The tree with the most tickets will receive a prize. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event and cost $5 per ticket or five tickets for $20. Admission to view the trees is free, but monetary and food donations are welcome.

Salmon Run Mall’s Regal Cinemas to serve beer, wine

in Entertainment 603 views

WATERTOWN — Let’s all go to the lobby, let’s go to the lobby, let’s go to the lobby.

And get ourselves a beer or glass of wine.

Moviegoers at Regal Cinemas Stadium 12 in the Salmon Run Mall will soon be able to get beer or glasses of wine and go into the theater to drink it.

In January, the state Liquor Authority unanimously approved the sale of beer and wine at movie theaters.

On Thursday, the Watertown Town Board learned that Regal Cinemas applied for a tavern wine license with the Liquor Authority for the mall theater.

However, town officials weren’t sure what that meant, since they didn’t know the Liquor Authority took the action in January. At first, they wondered whether it meant mixed drinks also would be served. Mixed drinks cannot be served.

Town board member David W. Prosser didn’t like the idea of adding beer and wine at the concession stand.

“That’s another reason I won’t go to the movies,” he said.

Movie theater operators have to go through the usual process of liquor licensing through the Liquor Authority.
