Prominent Construction Company Supports Annual Christmas In Middleburg Event

MIDDLEBURG, Va. — Venture Construction Group (VCG) is a proud Angel sponsor at the annual Christmas in Middleburg festival. The three-day event was held Dec. 6-8 and kicked off on Dec. 6 at 5 p.m. with a Tree Lighting Ceremony and caroling. On Dec. 7, festivities included breakfast with Santa, silent auction, craft fair, Santa’s workshop, Middleburg hunt and hounds review, and a parade. On Dec. 8 a live animal pageant was held at Foxcroft School. Over 12,000 visitors attended.

“For more than 40 years, the annual Christmas in Middleburg festival has provided a joyful celebration for thousands of participants. This event cannot be produced without the underlying support of our Angel Sponsors. For many years now Steve Shanton and the Venture Construction Group family have been committed Angel Sponsors for Christmas in Middleburg, just as they remain committed service providers to the Middleburg and Northern Virginia region. We are grateful for their support, which is a blessing and a benefit to our entire community,” says Jim Herbert, organizer, Christmas In Middleburg.

The hour-long Christmas Parade drew in crowds from Virginia and neighboring states and kicked off with the Middleburg hunt review with riders on horseback accompanied by a pack of hounds. The procession included foot beagle hunt clubs, polo clubs, animal affinity groups, community groups, enthusiast groups, business floats, reenactment bands, high school bands, followed by Santa on his coach in closing.

“To say this event is awesome is an understatement. Huge thanks to our Angel Sponsors, planning committee and tireless staff and volunteers who brought this together, yet again, to showcase our town and community!” says Mayor Bridge Littleton, Town of Middleburg.
