Unique Winter Events in Alexandria

December 5, 2016

There are plenty of captivating holiday celebrations unique to the area around ROSS’ Alexandria apartments.

Holidays are a time for building beloved memories with friends and family. However, the redundancy of predictable traditions like parades, tree lightings and holiday markets may lose their appeal over time.

We propose the residents of ROSS’ Alexandria apartments reignite the spark of their wintertime traditions with these special winter activities native to Alexandria! 

 

Historic Alexandria Candlelight Tours

December 10 from 4 p.m.-9 p.m.

“Bring Holiday Cheer to your celebrations this year! Historic Alexandria Candlelight Tours, the city’s premier historic holiday event, blends history, food and drink through special tastings, seasonal decorations, music and tours highlighting festive traditions. Tour Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, Carlyle House, Lee-Fendall House and the Old Presbyterian Meeting House. Special seasonal libations may be purchased along the tour.”

 

Waterskiing Santa

Take the whole family down to the historic Old Town Alexandria Waterfront for a sight unlike any you’ve ever seen before – Santa Claus and his elves gliding across the water on skis! “After the show, Santa Claus and his merry crew greet families and children, who came to watch this crazy show, in the pavilion on the waterfront and behind the Torpedo Factory.”
