Alex Winter Fête is BACK and bigger and better than EVER! This free, family-friendly festival returns to Alexandria with many exciting activities that everyone will enjoy. Try a twirl on the outdoor skating rink, watch in wonder at the fireworks over the Red River, explore the children’s area known as Jolly Junction, and interact with talented stilt walkers, fire breathers, live music, and more. Don’t miss the downtown shopping vendors and delicious food that Fetes have become known for as well. Grab your Ugly Sweater and join us Saturday morning for the Ugly Sweater Family Fun Run! It all begins with the traditional lighting of the tree during Holiday Magic and Santa’s arrival at Santa’s Village at the Alexander Fulton Mini Park downtown on Thursday, November 30th at 4 pm.
