Grand Illumination


Kick off the holidays with Fort Lee’s Grand Illumination on Thursday, December 1, at 4:00 p.m., when we light up the corner of Mahone Avenue and Battle Drive with our special holiday tree. There will be cookies, carolers, food trucks and a performance by the U.S. Army TRADOC Band. Kids can drop off their letters to Santa or ride the Candy Express Train through the winter wonderland. Santa is scheduled to arrive around 4:40 p.m. to visit with the kids and pose for photos.
