Holidays & Ice Skating

Holiday festivities and traditions are plenty at Reston Town Center. Whether you enjoy taking a spin around the Pavilion ice rink or a leisurely ride around the Center in a horse-drawn carriage, there is something to do for everyone!


Celebrate favorite traditions and create magical memories throughout the holiday season with friends and family at Reston Town Center.

Have “SNOW MUCH FUN” at the 30th annual Reston Holiday Parade (rain or shine), the day after Thanksgiving. The one-of-a-kind, one-hour, half-mile parade along Market Street also welcomes the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus. Enjoy the twinkling lights and festive décor in the Town Center from a horse-drawn carriage ride or take the kids around town on a mini-train ride.

Finally, don’t miss weekend entertainment at the Fountain Square tree that will fill you with holiday cheer!
