Hundreds gather the Friday after Thanksgiving, all with lighted candles and song sheets in hand and proceed down Main Street singing classic Christmas carols along the way. As the procession moves down Main Street many of the downtown businesses will illuminate their holiday windows as the carolers pass by. This creates a wave of lights effect, and is known as one the most beautiful sights of the Processional.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus lead, in a horse drawn carriage, down to Hopkins Green where a choir and City official greet them and light the Lexington Christmas Tree and officially usher in the holiday season.
This year’s event kicks off at 5:30 pm on November 26, 2010 from Main St. by the Stonewall Cemetery. Call: 540-463-5375
