There are so many fun things to do over Thanksgiving Weekend.
If you find yourself looking for an experience to create memories and get ready for the holiday season, here are a few of my recommendations!
- Meadowlark’s Winter Walk of Lights (Through January 8, 2023, Vienna)
Meadowlark’s Winter Walk of Lights is an elegant garden trail decorated with thousands of sparkling lights. The half-mile walk through the enchanting Meadowlark Botanical Gardens features nature themes and animated displays along a paved wheelchair and stroller-accessible trail. Stay warm by sipping on a hot beverage (with or without spirits) as you walk and s’mores to finish out the evening.
- Mosaic Holiday Tree Lighting + Santa Firetruck Parade (Friday, November 25, Mosaic District)
Welcome the beginning of the holiday season with a merry and bright tree lighting. Santa will spread holiday cheer and make his way through Mosaic on a firetruck with live entertainment and fun for the entire family.
- Reston Town Center Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting (Friday, November 25, Reston)
Reston Town Center launches the season with the annual Reston Holiday Parade celebrating its 31st year! The one-of-a-kind, one-hour, half-mile parade along Market Street also welcomes the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus in a horse-drawn carriage.
- The Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild (November 25-27, Vienna)
This show features 40-60 local juried artists and crafters offering original, handmade arts and crafts.
- Thanksgiving Barks & Brews Festival (Saturday, November 26, McLean)
Come out to Shipgarten for their Thanksgiving Barks & Brews Festival! The event will include live music, live character performances from Princess Parties DC featuring Encanto as well as various activities, crafts and games throughout the day!

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
