Weekend Watch: Kid-Friendly festivities

Filed Under:

It's a weekend of traditional biggies on the child-friendly-holiday-event circuit!

Since it's in our own neighborhood, my family is excited about the 36th Annual Old Town Scottish Walk Christmas Parade on Saturday morning, starting at 10:30 a.m. Loads of fun! Ava loves seeing all the dogs and bagpipers in the parade - Not to mention Santa at the end.

This year's parade will be extra special because of a group of young kids who will have a booth on the parade route - in front of the Spangler home at 304 S. St. Asaph St. - for a very good cause. Their fist annual Children of Old Town/Alexandria Hot Chocolate/Cookie Stand will be selling homemade goodies and hot drinks, with 100 percent of proceeds going to the children of U.S. military service members who have been killed in action in Iraq. Not only is this effort truly from the heart, but the kids have been hard at work to make it a success. Please stop by the booth and support their goal of sharing holiday cheer with children who have lost a parent in service to the nation.

Also this weekend - The annual Family Holiday Sing-Along at Wolf Trap in NoVa, and the Holiday Lighted Boat Parade, which starts in Alexandria and ends in Georgetown.
