This year’s Warrenton Christmas Parade promises to be particularly special. Two of Fauquier County’s most beloved holiday events are being combined to create a memorable evening in Old Town Warrenton. The Christmas parade and Illumination Walk will be married into one new old-fashioned tradition on Old Town Warrenton’s Main Street.
The evening will also include the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Old Courthouse and the opening of GumDrop Square immediately following the parade.
Santa Claus will make his way to the Old Courthouse where he, along with Warrenton’s Mayor, will light the town Christmas tree. Santa Claus will then head to the crown jewel of Christmas in Warrenton, the award winning GumDrop Square. Families will visit with Santa and receive one complimentary photo and the children then have the opportunity to enter Santa’s Secret Shop and purchase wrapped gifts with the help of Santa’s elves. Each gift in the shop is just $2.
After the parade and a visit to GumDrop Square, stroll down Main Street enjoying carolers, orchestras, choirs, merchant open houses, a live nativity, food trolleys and horse-drawn hayrides. Come and experience Christmas in true Old Town fashion.
