It's Holiday Time in Arlington . . .

December 1, 2010

Downtown Arlington Has a Lot to Offer on Dec. 11

With the 50-foot blue spruce tree now up and decorated on Abram Street in front of City Hall, Arlington's Holiday Lights Parade couldn't be far behind.

Mayor Cluck's Holiday Party With Children will start at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 11, at the George W. Hawkes Central Library. Holiday storytellers, crafts, entertainment, and a chance to meet with the Mayor and his family. This event is for children ages 4 to 10.

At 6 p.m., thousands will converge on downtown area streets to watch and marvel at marching bands, lighted floats, antique cars, youth groups and holiday dancers as the official kick off to the city's holiday festivities. Come extra early for pre-parade entertainment. Beginning at 4 p.m., see a wide range of live entertainment on the Levitt Pavilion stage, the steps of City Hall and the Arlington Museum of Art. New this year for the parade: Roller derby skaters and a group of moms doing what's being called the "stroller stride." We've done this for seven years now and the fun and excitement gets better each year," said Don Duke, co-chair of the parade with Lauren Tatum and Joni Wilson. Parade details.
