Mayor Justin Wilson will usher in the holiday season with the city’s annual tree lighting ceremony on Nov. 20 at 6 p.m., according to a news release. The ceremony will be held in Market Square, 301 King St.
As part of the ceremony, Alexandria’s town crier will welcome visitors, as holiday music is played and Santa Clause rides into the city on the King Street trolley. Admission to the ceremony is free, and the Alexandria Health Department recommends that masks are worn outdoors for public gatherings if crowding and close contact cannot be avoided, according to the release.
