2016 Port Warwick Holiday Tree Lighting

Posted on November 21, 2016 at 8:09 AM by Communications Department

Join Santa and his elves for a free traditionalPortWarwickTreeLight_SC holiday experience on Saturday, November 26, from 5:00 - 8:30 PM in Port Warwick, 3100 William Styron Square N. Arriving by horse and carriage, Santa and his elves will stroll to the Pavilion and “light” the majestic tree. Each child will have a chance to visit with Old Saint Nick and tell him what they most want for Christmas. Parents can photograph their child with Santa.

With two stages for entertainment, live choral groups will entertain you on one while a second stage will feature storytellers. For a special treat, the number of face painters has increased to accommodate the extra demand! santa_SC

Free hot pretzels are available while they last. In addition, some Port Warwick merchants will offer cookies and hot chocolate. For those hungry for more, food will be available for purchase. The free community event is supported by Virginia Health Services, Port Warwick Merchants, City of Newport News, and Home Advisor.
