BUCHANAN, Va. (WFXR) — Towns across the Commonwealth celebrate the holiday season with Christmas parades and tree lighting ceremonies. In Buchanan, festivities include a Christmas Eve luminary display.

Dozens of volunteers will line Main Street with luminaries on Dec. 24 in anticipation of Christmas.

The display “memorializes the love of those who supported the Town following the flood of 1985” with water gallon donations, according to a town post.

Residents and students at Buchanan Elementary School began collecting milk jugs in August for the luminaries.

Residents and visitors are welcomed to enjoy the display beginning at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Those interested in supporting this event can volunteer at 3 p.m. on Dec 24 to line the street with luminaries and at 6 p.m. to light them up.

Another set of volunteers are also needed on Chrismas Day at 9 a.m. to remove the luminaries, according to a town post.

If interested in volunteering or want information about this event, contact the Buchanan Downtown Revitalization Program at (540) 254 – 1212.
