T-Minus Two Weeks to Shirlington Tree Lighting

Update on 11/28/11 — This event has been rescheduled for Thursday, Dec. 1.

Ready or not, the holiday season is upon us. Case in point: Shirlington’s 9th annual holiday tree-lighting is only two weeks away.

The ‘Light Up the Village‘ event will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29. In addition to the tree lighting, which will take place at 6:30 p.m., there will also be live music, strolling entertainment, local merchant specials, photos with Santa (inside the UPS Store), horse and carriage rides (cost: a canned food donation to the Arlington Food Assistance Center), face painting, balloon twisting and more.

Shirlington also plans to get festive with two Pet Photos with Santa events. Pet owners can try to get their four-legged friends to pose with Ol’ Saint Nick from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Dec. 8 and 15. The photo events are taking place inside Dogma Bakery (2772 S. Arlington Mill Drive). The store requests a $10 donation to benefit Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
