Holiday happenings and shop-hops galore have been making their way across our desks of late. If you want to get in the spirit and jump start that shopping list, check back often as we tell you the teases from around town. Here’s your first taste:
Our go-to spot for shopping in the city, Georgetown, again brings the cheer. The 2nd annual Merriment in Georgetown (Dec. 6 3-6 PM) offers candlelight caroling, horsedrawn carriage rides, tree lighting, and area retailers of course!
At F Street & 7th NW, the 5th annual Downtown Holiday Market (Dec. 23 12-8 PM) combines eco-friendly goods, arts & crafts, holidays accents, sweets and more seasonal surprises. Some of our fave finds at this event… The Sugar Cube (old fashioned candies and speciality sweets) and Thomas Bucci (watercolors of Washington and other picturesque world wonders).
Alexandria wants you to come visit, over the river and through the woods. Ok, no woods. The city’s three days of free activities (Dec. 3-5) include holiday luminaries, a Scottish walk and parade (5th, 11:00 – 1:00) and a boat parade of lights. Info on the full calendar of events here.
