Reston Town Center’s Annual Holiday Parade

See the 1-hour, half-mile parade along Market Street as a family this year! Kids can expect to see Santa and Mrs. Claus in a horse-drawn carriage (the reindeer are away training for the big day). The Claus family will make a second appearance later in the day at the tree lighting. The parade will take place at 11 a.m. and the tree lighting will follow at 6 p.m. Arrive early and pick up a parade bell while supplies last.


Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration

Visit a winter wonderland with free treats, face paintings, balloon art and more holiday cheer as CenterCityDC celebrates its 10th anniversary! The anniversary festivities will begin at 5 p.m. The annual holiday tree lighting celebration will be held at 6 p.m. in The Park at CityCenter, on the corner of New York Ave. NW and 11th St. NW.

For the holiday season, CityCenterDC will also have a commemorative handmade, limited-edition ornament for sale. All proceeds will go to Children’s National Hospital.
