Snow, parade, shopping fill The Square with Christmas



Crowds from Washington-Wilkes and surrounding counties filled The Square over the weekend to enjoy Christmas shopping, the Parade of Lights, and more Snow on The Square. “They come because this is the ideal Christmas event,” John Singleton III said. “Every year each of us seeks to re-create that ideal childhood Christmas, and no mall or outlet can sell us that. Only Washington gives us that. It gives us that chance to be a child again and more importantly share that ideal with our children and family.” Crowds from Washington-Wilkes and surrounding counties filled The Square over the weekend to enjoy Christmas shopping, the Parade of Lights, and more Snow on The Square. “They come because this is the ideal Christmas event,” John Singleton III said. “Every year each of us seeks to re-create that ideal childhood Christmas, and no mall or outlet can sell us that.
