One Loudoun To Celebrate Holiday Season With Inaugural Tree Lighting

The first holiday tree lighting ceremony at Loudoun County’s newest retail community, Downtown One Loudoun, is expected to attract hundreds of community residents to a traditional holiday celebration with a modern twist.

The event will be held on Saturday, December 7 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm and is free to the public. There will be a variety of food and beverage samplings made available by the Downtown One Loudoun merchants, along with kids’ photos with the Loudoun Hounds mascot, Fetch, free holiday photos for families and friends, and children’s crafts and entertainment.

Santa will arrive in style at 6:00 pm atop a Loudoun County fire truck with lights flashing and sirens roaring. This high-tech Santa will be outfitted with an iPhone and iPad to record children’s wishes. Santa will help light the tree at 6:15 pm and pose for photos from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Throughout the event, local choirs and dance performances from the Creative Dance Center will entertain the crowd.
