    Tree Lighting at Stoney Creek
    Nellysford, Virginia


    With snow flurries in the air, the Christmas season officially kicked off Wednesday night at Stoney Creek with their annual Christmas Tree lighting and caroling outside of Stoney Creek Bar & Grill. Santa Clause even made an appearance later in the evening, but chose to ride in on a fire truck, saving the sleigh for Christmas!
