A long-standing holiday tradition returned in 2017, and now it's one of the most popular events in Loudoun County, VA.
WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It wasn’t considered officially the holiday season in Leesburg, VA until children witnessed Santa Claus flying around Leesburg wishing everyone a Happy Holidays and eventually landing at the Virginia Village Shopping Center on Catoctin Circle in Leesburg. This long-standing tradition started with WAGE Radio (1200AM) in the 1960s. However, this tradition ended long before the radio station officially closed its doors in 2008. In 2017, the tradition was reignited, so get your wish lists ready because Santa and his helicopter, once again, return this holiday season.
Keane Enterprises purchased the 18-acre Virginia Village Shopping Center in June 2017. With the purchase of the property comes new opportunities and the opportunity to relive old traditions. Brian Cullen, President, Keane Enterprises, wants to bring back many of the older Leesburg holiday traditions that made Leesburg unique. One of the most popular Leesburg holiday traditions is Santa arriving in his helicopter to greet holiday well-wishers. Families can witness Santa’s arrival and visit with him on Saturday, December 15 beginning at 10:00am at the Virginia Village Shopping Center on Catoctin Circle in Leesburg.
“We want families to experience the many Leesburg traditions from the past that have made Leesburg so unique. And, how more unique can you get than Santa arriving by helicopter? We brought back this tradition last year and it was a huge success. Children, young and old, lit up with joy as Santa landed to the roar of his adoring fans. That’s the sense of joy we want to bring to families and to the Virginia Village Shopping Center,” stated Cullen.
Families will have the opportunity to meet Santa Claus and have their picture taken with him. Children have the opportunity to create a special gift for their loved ones. The Leesburg Farmer’s Market will be in full operation, food trucks, holiday cookies, cider, hot chocolate, etc. will be available. This event is free for the entire family.
