Revelers of all ages gathered Nov. 28 to be socialize, shop and be entertained at Vienna’s 26th annual Church Street Holiday Stroll.
The weather was cool but clear and attendees could warm their hands and toast marshmallows over wood fires set up at intervals along the street.
Musical groups, including the Vienna Community Band’s Brass Ensemble and Wolftrap Elementary School’s Fifth- and Sixth-Grade Chorus performed holiday classics.
Santa Claus, along with an elf and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer arrived atop an antique fire engine with lights flashing and sirens wailing. Santa and Mayor Linda Colbert led the countdown for the ceremonial lighting of the town’s holiday tree and then Santa moved through the crowd to the porch of the Freeman Store & Museum, where he entertained children’s gift wishes.
