Big Ge­orge back in Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton!

Rappahannock News - - COMMENT - JUDY DESARNO for the Christ­mas in Rap­pa­han­nock County pa­rade com­mit­tee

Save Dec. 10 — the not-to-be­missed All-County Christ­mas Pa­rade and Ar­ti­sans Mar­ket will oc­cur in the town of Wash­ing­ton. This year Ge­orge Wash­ing­ton him­self, along with the lovely Martha, have agreed to serve as grand mar­shalls. This may be the first time in more than 200 years that GW has re­turned to the town named for him. This year sees the re­turn of a much ex­panded Ar­ti­sans Mar­ket in four lo­ca­tions, along with the Inn at Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton mar­ket in the cen­ter of town.

The pa­rade will be led by the Knights of Colum­bus and will fea­ture the re­turn of the Rap­pa­han­nock Hunt, along with fa­vorites that in­clude the award­win­ning Rap­pa­han­nock County High School Band, an­tique cars with lo­cal lu­mi­nar­ies, floats fea­tur­ing the chil­dren of Rap­pa­han­nock, and, of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the pa­rade, Santa will ap­pear on the porch of the County Ad­min­is­tra­tor’s of­fice to lis­ten to the re­quests of each child and Mrs. Claus will have a gift for ev­ery child.

While there is no charge for the fes­tiv­i­ties, it is a fundraiser for the Food Pantry and we hope you’ll drop a few (or more than a few) dol­lars in the bas­kets.

The county-wide event is the cul­mi­nat­ing cel­e­bra­tion of the year. Come one, come all to Christ­mas in Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton, aka Christ­mas in Rap­pa­han­nock County.
