’Tis the season for holiday cheer! And Stony Point Fashion Park has transformed into a Winter Wonderland filled with tons of festivities that will allow you to skate through this season with ease.
Starting November 10, you and your family can kick off the holiday season with Santa and the Holiday Princess. Enjoy music by KOS Band and a performance from the James River Ice Theatre as Santa and the Holiday Princess light the 42-foot animated holiday tree. If you miss the tree lighting, there is no need to worry. Until New Years Day, the Holiday Tree Light Show will operate daily at the top and bottom of each hour, beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until 11 p.m.
November also marks the return of Stony Point On Ice! Grab your whole family and hit the ice to spin and twirl on this scenic skating rink. Take advantage of special ice rink events like Two-for-Tuesdays, which grants you two tickets for the price of one and H&M Night which offers a free ticket when you make a purchase of $25 or more at H&M. If you’re not interested in skating, why not take a seat and watch the James River Ice Theatre for a magical holiday performance! Every Saturday at 5:30 p.m., the theatre will perform spectacular shows like Stony Point Fashion on Ice. Watch as the skaters showcase the latest fashions right on the rink. It will be unlike any other fashion show you’ve ever seen before!
Shopping will also be an easy, stress-free experience. Several new shops and bakeries are opening up in November that offer unique gifts no one else will have. Visit See’s Candies for that perfect chocolate covered Secret Santa gift or Tipsy Cupcakes for a tasty sweet treat with a buzz. If you’re searching for the perfect dress for your little princess, Nana Belle is the place to go. And when it comes to the lovely lady in your life, Down the Garden Path offers beautiful gifts for home, garden and life.
Once your shopping is complete, sit back on any one of the cabana-style seating areas to relax and enjoy the sounds of the strolling carolers. Dressed in Dickens outfits, the carolers will sing all of your favorite holiday songs as they stroll throughout the Fashion Park. And don’t forget to take a picture with Santa! Located in Space #189 across from Yankee Candle, Santa will be waiting to capture that special moment with you and your child. Bring your pet along as well. They may also grab a picture with Santa!
For an extra treat, reserve a romantic carriage ride for you and a loved one. The complimentary horse-drawn carriage will ride throughout the center, beginning at the Saks Fifth Avenue and Brooks Brothers entrance. Once your ride is complete, enjoy a nice dinner at any one of several excellent restaurants. Latitude is a delicious seafood restaurant offering some of the freshest raw shellfish in the area. Or, for a more festive treat, visit La Hacienda for delicious Cali-Mex cuisine.
Stony Point Fashion Park has everything planned to make your holiday events and shopping excursions an experience that you and the whole family will love.
