Christmas comes to Bowie next week as the Fantasy of Lights Christmas Festival welcomes the season with one of the area’s biggest and longest running lighted Christmas parades on Dec. 1.
After last week’s Hanging of the Greens the community has begun to sparkle for the holiday season. The Bowie Community Development Board (formerly Main Street Bowie) presents a variety of activities across two days to celebrate the season. This will be the 27th year for the Christmas parade.
Start off the holidays with one of the community’s popular events, a holiday Sip & Stroll with Me from 5 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 30. Participating merchants will have the Sip & Stroll glasses and armbands for sale at $10. Guests can use a previously purchased Sip & Stroll glass, but they must present an armband.

On Saturday there will be Breakfast with Santa complete with free photos with the Big Guy, Elfin ‘N Magic, the tree lighting ceremony and the lighted Fantasy of Lights Parade.
