Reston Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting

I am so excited to be part of one of my favorite holiday events of the season. On Black Friday November 29th at the Reston Town Center the wonderful Holiday Parade kicks off at 11AM. Macy’s-style balloons, musicians and marching bands, dancers, antique cars, community groups, and more make up this one-of-a-kind, one-hour procession welcoming the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus for the season. This year’s theme is “Destination: Reston“.

Then at 6PM is the annual Christmas Tree lighting. Santa and Mrs. Claus roll in to light to tree. I’m honored to emcee this years lighting. My colleague Doug Kammerer will be on site doing his weather reports live for NBC Washington too!

Bundle up and join us for an unforgettable way to start off this holiday season! If you’re out there.. say hi!

Wonderful floats!

Blowin' it up: Monster floats take Market Street

Move over Macy’s parade.. the Reston is blowin’ it up this year when it comes to the annual holiday street show. Check out the enormous floats that towered over Market Street at Reston Town Center. The annual Reston Holiday Parade happens the day after Thanksgiving. Mix 107.3’s Chilli Amar and Carson did a great job announcing the floats and I was impressed to see so many smiling faces crowding the streets despite the rain. The holidays: everyone must be ready!
