As winter holidays quickly approach, a festive day-long event is coming to Rosslyn next week.
Hosted by the Rosslyn Business Improvement District (BID), Rosslyn Cheer will take place at the Central Place Plaza (1800 N. Lynn Street) on Wednesday, December 4 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., and then from 5-7:30 p.m. There will be holiday-themed food, drinks, activities, music and more.
During lunchtime hours, there will be holiday cookies for sale, free hot chocolate, and a performance from an a cappella group. While later in the evening from 5 p.m they’ll have a tree lighting, live performance from the H-B Woodlawn Chamber Singers and Cinema Hearts, food trucks, a holiday bar, more treats, and gifts for sale.
Throughout the day, the BID will hold its annual Rosslyn Holiday Clothing Drive, where they will be collecting warm hats, coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, and gloves. All the items will go towards the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network.
“Rosslyn Cheer is a time for the community to come together and kick off the holiday season, from the tree lighting in Central Place Plaza to the lighted buildings across our distinctive skyline,” said Rosslyn BID president, Mary-Claire Burick. “The highlight will be a performance from Rosslyn’s new school, H-B Woodlawn, who have brought their light to the neighborhood since moving in this September.”
