Leading Local Construction Company Supports Annual Festival
MIDDLEBURG, Va. — Venture Construction Group (VCG) was a proud Angel Sponsor at the annual Christmas in Middleburg festival. The three-day event included a tree lighting ceremony, caroling, breakfast with Santa, craft fair, Santa’s workshop, Middleburg hunt and hounds review, Christmas parade, and a live Nutcracker Ballet performance. Over 10,000 visitors attended.
“It’s always so much fun to support the annual Christmas in Middleburg festival! This event was a great opportunity for the community to come together and get in the holiday spirit, once again,” said Stephen Shanton, CEO and president of Venture Construction Group (VCG).
Throughout the hour-long Christmas parade, crowds gathered from Virginia and surrounding states to see the Middleburg hunt and hounds review as riders on horseback accompanied by hound packs rode through the streets. VCG staff and crews participated in the festivities by decorating a float in the parade to celebrate the holidays along with local clubs, churches, schools, community groups, and sports teams. The parade included horses, ponies, llama, alpacas, and various dog breeds, followed by Santa on his coach in closing.
“It was so great to see everyone at Christmas in Middleburg 2021! Sending out a huge thank you for everyone’s hard work to make Christmas in Middleburg a fun day for all! Extra Special thank you to all of our 2021 sponsors, participants, organizers, volunteers, vendors, and the town of Middleburg!” says Michelle and Doug Myers, co-organizers, Christmas in Middleburg.
