Later this month, people in Reston have the chance to celebrate the holidays with a day of festivities.
The Reston Holiday Parade is set to take place on Friday (Nov. 29) in the Reston Town Center (11900 Market Street) and includes family-friendly events that are scheduled to take place throughout the day.
Festivities will kick-off with a half-mile parade beginning at 11 a.m., which will last an hour and feature “Macy’s-style balloons, musicians, dancers, antique cars, characters, community groups, dignitaries, special guest emcees,” according to the event website.
Children will be given bells along the parade route.
The route will run along Market Street and finish up with Mr. and Mrs. Clause, which kids will have the opportunity to interact with later.
People can enjoy mini train rides, street entertainment and take photos with Mr. and Mrs. Clause from noon until 4:30 p.m, following the parade.
At 6 p.m. there will be a Fountain Square tree lighting and sing-along, followed by horse-drawn carriage rides from 6:30 until 10 p.m.
All proceeds from the paid activities will benefit local charities.
