On Christmas Eve, next Tuesday, Dec. 24 at 1 p.m., the Waterskiing Santa Show will occur in the Potomac River on the Alexandria Waterfront. This will be the 34th year of this wonderful show, which includes numerous acts, including flipping waterskiers, characters like Frosty The Snowman, the Grinch and others and, finally, Santa Claus skiing by with his full complement of reindeer. The best viewing will be on the waterfront between Oronoco Street and Duke Street. The current weather prediction includes no precipitation. Typically, thousands of people view the show and it is always exciting and enjoyable. There is no charge to watch the show and an amusing pre-show featuring the Grinch begins at 12:45 p.m.

After the show, there is plenty to do in Alexandria from shopping and eating to observing the beauty of this historic city. Merry Christmas to all my Christian friends.
