Season’s greetings to our readers! We hope you’ve been enjoying all Old Town Alexandria has to offer this holiday season – from our traditional events like the Scottish Christmas Walk Parade and Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights, to shopping and dining in more than 200 independent boutiques and restaurants. There’s still time to enjoy Waterskiing Santa on Christmas Eve and First Night Alexandria on New Year’s Eve.

We are proud that Alexandria was named one of “America’s Top Holiday Towns” by USA Today in 2016 and that in 2017 the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend was named one of “The South’s Best Christmas Festivals” by Southern Living and the Alexandria Holiday Boat Parade of Lights won a USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Award for “Best Holiday Parades.”

Here’s a video postcard wishing you and yours a happy holiday season from Alexandria!
