Lights, action, Christmas!
The Christmas season officially kicks off in Alexandria this Friday with the "Christmas in the Fort" event.
That's when Santa and Mrs. Claus will visit the Runestone Museum and flip the switch to turn on the Christmas lights on Broadway.
The gates for the free event will open at 3 p.m. Several activities are planned:
Santa and Mrs. Claus will be available for picture taking with children.
Zion Lutheran School Children's Choir will perform at 4 p.m.
