Bagpiper to Lead Christmas Eve Procession Down Wisconsin Avenue

The procession will begin at dusk on Dec. 24.

In remembrance of those who have past before us, St. John's Episcopal Church is organizing a bagpipe procession on Christmas Eve through the streets of Georgetown. 

This "new tradition" also draws upon Georgetown's Scottish roots. According to a brochure published by the church, "Dunbartonshire was a part of Georgetown where many a Scotsman and Scotswoman came to become citizens and to help build this great City & Nation!"

The bagpipe player will begin the procession at dusk at Oak Hill Cemetery on R Street. He will then travel down Wisconsin Avenue to O Street. The procession will end at St. John's Episcopal Church shortly after 5 p.m. A few Christmas songs will be played at the church at the end of the procession.
