I know, I know, Thanksgiving is still a week away, but in preparation for our upcoming “Holiday Feature” (where we’ll spill the dirt on what’s going on in the area – look for it on December 1), I wanted to pass on some relevant info.

On Friday, Nov 28, when you’ve come out of your turkey coma, head over to Market Square in Old Town Alexandria at 7 p.m. There, you’ll find Alexandria’s Tree Lighting Ceremony. Food, entertainment (though I question if a “message from the mayor” is truly considered entertaining? What’s he going to do, break into a comedy routine?), a visit from Santa and caroling all await those eager to jump into the holiday season.

Know of your community’s tree lighting party? Drop the info below in comments.

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
