Revisit perennial favorites such as the Lakeside Lights, the Fountain of Lights, and the Holiday Nature Walk - and look for new displays each year. Put on your walking shoes and bring the family to experience a Northern Virginia festive tradition. Round out your visit by roasting marshmallows, and sip[ping on hot beverages by the fire.
