Celebrate the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at Holidays in Leesburg!
Celebrate the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at Holidays in Leesburg!

From the Town of Leesburg – The Town of Leesburg invites locals and visitors to enjoy "the most wonderful time of the year" and experience a little holiday magic in historic downtown Leesburg. 

On Saturday, December 11, 2010, the holiday spirit will be in full swing as Leesburg hosts the annual holiday parade. The parade will begin at 10:00 a.m. and usher Santa and his friends down King Street, through the heart of historic Leesburg. The parade will begin at Ida Lee Drive and end at Fairfax Street. Parade participation is open to the public, including businesses, civic groups, teams, organizations, and community groups. In preparation for the parade, King Street will be closed to vehicular traffic at 9:30 a.m. from Ida Lee Drive to Catoctin Circle.

Following the parade, historic downtown Leesburg will feature festive entertainment including roaming characters, roving musicians and a letter-writing station for children to compose their wish lists to the North Pole. While shopping downtown Leesburg, be sure to grab a photo with Frosty, Rudolph and the man of the hour – Santa!

This day of fun, food and shopping will be capped off by one of the best concerts in the area – the Jingle Jam, Leesburg’s holiday rock n’ roll concert. This concert will feature many local and regional artists playing traditional holiday tunes, with a little edge. We bet you never knew Santa could boogie like this! Show times will be 2:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.  New this year is the addition of the “Junior Jam,” a 30-minute kid-oriented concert that will be held at 11:30 a.m.  A portion of the proceeds for the Jingle Jam concerts will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

This holiday season, Leesburg will be the home of great shopping, good food, and rockin' music. For more details about the Holidays in Leesburg activities, please call 703-777-1368 or visit www.idalee.org.
