Three Centuries of Virginia Christmas

When: Sat., Dec. 9, 12-5 p.m. 2017

Henricus interpreters will be demonstrating the changing traditions of English Christmas during the reigns of King James I (1621), King George III (1776) and Queen Victoria (1864). From 6-9 p.m., enjoy the James River Advisory Council’s Parade of Lights from the banks of Henricus Historical Park. This popular event features boats traveling along the James River decorated for the holiday season. “The traditions of Christmas have changed drastically throughout time, especially during the 17th to 19th centuries,” said Charles L. Grant, executive director of Henricus Historical Park. “Our Christmas program along with Parade of Lights is a great way to kick off the month of December and celebrate the holidays.”

Price: Free.
