There’s a reason Oprah Magazine named Alexandria one of the best Christmas towns in the world. The holiday season comes alive through various events and there are plenty of ways to get into the holiday spirit. Some of them are given below.
Christmas Eve in Alexandria isn’t complete without this fun show on the waterfront. The volunteer-run show features Santa and other familiar faces. The show starts at 1 p.m., but come early for the pre-show. The main viewing area is Waterfront Park (1 King Street and 1A Prince Street), with others at Alexandria City Marina (0 Cameron Street), Founders Park (351 N. Union Street), and Point Lumley Park (1 Duke Street).
Colonial Handbell Ringers Concert
The Colonial English Handbell Ringers perform clad in colonial attire, bringing a five-octave set of nearly 80 handbells from the world-famous Whitechapel foundry in London. The ringers will perform children’s classics, timeless holiday tunes, and original show-stoppers at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Audience participation in the sing-along is encouraged. No reservations will be accepted in advance, and seating capacity is limited.
A Victorian Christmas
Experience the wonder of the season by partaking in a Victorian Christmas at the Lee-Fendall House at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Enjoy traditional décor, holiday crafts, sweet treats, seasonal storytime, photos with Santa and more.
