Reston Holiday Parade
LOCATION 11900 MARKET STREET, RESTON, VA 20190
Friday, November 29, 2019
Reston Town Center launches the festive season at the 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. Before the parade begins, thousands of jingle bells will be handed out to children along the route. After the parade, enjoy visits and photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus, plus Mini-Train rides until 4:30 p.m., 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.
Voted “Best Holiday Parade” 2016 ● 2017 ● 2018

Join the crowd in a Reston tradition to make a wish as Santa lights the tree.

With the lights twinkling, Santa & Mrs. Claus begin the merriment and song, led by the Reston Chorale and a brass quintet and the hum of the holidays within the crowd continues.
