|2012 Tree Lighting Ceremony|
The Warrenton Christmas Parade is returning this year continuing the new tradition of a Friday evening community parade through Old Town Warrenton. The parade will again travel down historic Main Street allowing thousands of spectators to witness Fauquier County's largest community Christmas Parade of the season.
Santa received several letters from kids in our community and said this year he will travel down the entire parade route. He will again glide down Main Street in a carriage pulled my a majestic horse stopping only at the courthouse to assist Mayor Fitch in illuminating the Town of Warrenton Christmas tree from his carriage.
Before or after the parade visit the Christkindlmarkt (Christmas Market), another new Warrenton tradition. Christkindlmarkt's date back to 1434 in Germany when local merchants sold food, drink and seasonal items from open air stalls. This market is accompanied by musicians and singers that ring in the holiday season.
