Middleburg kicked off its holiday season with the lighting of the town’s Christmas tree Friday, Dec. 2. A large crowd assembled outside The Pink Box to drink cocoa and sing carols along with the Piedmont Singers before the tree lighting.

The 44th annual Christmas in Middleburg was celebrated the following day. On this first Saturday in December, the town was blessed with perfect weather for festivities that included Breakfast with Santa, the Hunt and Hounds Review, hayrides, the Christmas Parade and more.

The events were executed without misstep before a crowd of more than 10,000. The morning procession of the Middleburg Hunt was followed in the afternoon by 80 parade entries that made their way down Washington Street to the delight of all in attendance.
