At sundown on the day of the Scottish Christmas Walk parade, Alexandria's harbor lights up as dozens of illuminated boats cruise the Potomac River at the historic waterfront, led by Alexandria's fireboat The Vigilant and Washington, DC's fireboat John Glenn. DC media personality Tommy McFly of 94.7 Fresh FM will be the parade announcer.  At the marina before and after the parade, stop in to the “Holiday Festival: Take a Walk in the Woods” at the Torpedo Factory Art Center between 4 and 9 p.m. to enjoy musical performances plus gift shopping in open artist studios. Santa will visit the Torpedo Factory until 7 p.m.
