Departing from Colonial Williamsburg’s Visitor Center, you will travel along the Colonial Parkway with your guide who will offer insights into early English Christmas traditions and what Jamestown settlers expected during their Christmastide. Upon arriving on Jamestown Island, you will be escorted along a cresset lit path to an early Virginia Christmas celebration. After a welcome by Governor Yeardley and singing carols in the historic church, you will herald in the season by the bonfire as you witness the firing of the Christmas guns in the shadow of the old fort.
