An annual holiday tradition in Alexandria received the city council’s blessing Monday night.
The council approved a request from the Runestone Museum to temporarily block 2nd Avenue for the “Christmas in the Fort” celebration on Friday, November 26.
The event, a kick-off to the Christmas season that also includes a ceremony to turn on the downtown Christmas lights, will begin at 3:15 p.m. and conclude at 5:30 p.m., according to Julie Blank, museum director.
For safety purposes, 2nd Avenue will be blocked from traffic one block east of Broadway and North Broadway will be blocked from north of Downtown Liquor to Big Ole Central Park.
