Christmas in Williamsburg!

Christmas is one of Williamsburg's favorite holidays! From the delicious hot cocoa and bright lights at Busch Gardens' Christmas Town to the piping hot apple cider and spectacular fireworks of Colonial Williamsburg's Grand Illumination, there are tons of things to see, do, and taste all month long!

Celebrate the spirit of the season at Busch Gardens' Christmas Town! Busch Gardens brings holiday traditions to life with heartwarming shows, delicious seasonal dining, and festive shopping opportunities. Don't forget to grab a mug of their signature hot chocolate! In 2015, Christmas Town will be brighter than ever with more than 8 MILLION lights! Santa's workshop will also be set up at the North Pole, so bring the kids on by to meet the jolly old elf himself! Get all the details right here!

In the 18th century, illuminations (including the firing of guns and lighting of fireworks) were held to celebrate major events, such as military victories or the arrival of a new colonial governor. Join Colonial Williamsburg on this special day of celebration by strolling the Revolutionary City and viewing all the unique decorations. Enjoy musical performances from multiple stages, watch the Fifes and Drums parade through town, and delight in the fireworks displays from three different locations! Don't miss the biggest holiday celebration in town at Colonial Williamsburg!

Wait, there's still more! In addition to several fun festivities all over Historic Yorktown that you can learn about here, this year is Williamsburg's 50th Annual Christmas Parade! You can even join in the fun holiday parade yourself. Learn more here. While you're in Colonial Williamsburg, visit the brand new Liberty's Ice Pavilion for fun ice skating with the family. Liberty's Ice Pavilion will be open until February 29th 2016. Find out more information here. Ice skating tickets are available for purchase at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center and Liberty's Ice Pavilion.

 Whatever you do this holiday season, the Williamsburg KOA wishes you many happy times with those closest to you.
