Reston Town Center launches the festive season at the 28th annual Reston Holiday Parade at 11:00 a.m. with Macy’s-style balloons, musicians, dancers, antique cars, characters, community groups, dignitaries, special guest emcees, and much more. The one-of-a-kind, one-hour, half-mile parade along Market Street also welcomes the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus in a horse-drawn carriage. Since 1991, rain or shine, the parade has been an annual tradition on the day after Thanksgiving. It has been ranked one of the “10 Best” in USA Today Travel, 2016 and 2017.
Before the parade begins, thousands of jingle bells will be handed out to spectators along the route. After the parade, enjoy visits and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, plus Mini-Train rides until 4:30 pm and street entertainment. The Clauses will return for the Fountain Square Tree Lighting and Sing Along at 6 pm. Afterwards, on Market Street, horse-drawn carriage rides continue from 6:30 until 10 pm. Proceeds for the photos and rides benefit local charities. The acclaimed Ice Skating Pavilion is open all day and every day from November until March.
Holidays are Here! at Reston Town Center with more festivities scheduled through December.
Ample parking is available in six garages, free of charge on parade day, federal holidays, all weekends, and free after 5 pm on weekdays.
