1 p.m. - 3 p.m    OLDE TYME CHRISTMAS HIKE ALONG RIVER AND RIDGE

**Limited participants program – reserve your spot now by emailing ccraig@laurellodge.com **

 

Enjoy hiking in Park and Town during Olde Tyme Christmas. Park at the Visitor Center, 171 Shoreline Drive, and ride the shuttle bus to the Lower Town. Meet at the benches next to the tent. (Allow extra time for parking and shuttles, especially if the weather is mild!) From there we will walk along the Shenandoah on Virginius Island before climbing a little piece of the Appalachian Trail on the flank of Camp Hill. Expect wintertime expansive and rocky views and possibly some wildlife. We’ll also view some history along the way: ruins of mills that once bustled along the Shenandoah, Jefferson Rock and Robert Harper’s house. Ending the walk in the town business district, you may opt to enjoy some of the special programs of Harpers Ferry’s 50th annual festival.

 

2.5-mile, MODERATE hike on earthen trails, mainly flat, but with short, steep climbs.

 

Masks and social distancing required. Maximum 20 participants.

Say hello to Mr. and Mrs. Claus at the historic Harpers Ferry Gazebo (Washington Street). To keep Santa safe before his big night, little ones won't be sitting on his lap, but will be close enough to give him their wish list.

5 p.m.               LUMINARIES LIT | Lower Town, Harpers Ferry

Watch Lower Town, Harpers Ferry light up at dusk when traditional luminaries are lit along our walking paths. Enjoy evening shopping in our decorated shops and wander the streets by candlelight.

6 p.m. - 8 p.m.   HOLIDAY LIGHT TOUR

 

Beginning in Colonial times, candles were placed in windows as a sign of good news, to welcome weary travelers, or when a family member was away. The Edison Light Company expanded this tradition with the invention of Christmas lights. Residents of Harpers Ferry welcome visitors with a driving tour of their beautiful historic homes dressed up for the holidays. Vote on your favorites!
