Christmas and Candlelight Brings Festive Fun to Historic Washington, Arkansas

Historic Washington State Park’s annual Christmas and Candlelight decorations brought a sense of frontier spirit to the holiday as the park guests enjoyed live music, dancing, a reading of the Story of Christmas, and more.

Located just up the highway from Hope, Washington’s rustic buildings and antique decorations set the mood for a stroll around the square, taking in the dimly glowing luminaries and listening to the sound of choirs, violins, and guitars as performers from all over the area lend their talents to the festivities.

Just about all of the buildings around Historic Washington’s courthouse played host to carolers, bands, and even a live Nativity Scene in front of the Methodist Church.

The fun continues Saturday night, so grab your family and join the fun at Historic Washington State Park!
