As anyone who has visited the District of Columbia during the holiday season knows, our nation’s capital represents when it comes to displaying some serious yuletide spirit. When you’re not hunkering down against the cold with family, friends and loved ones, we invite you to take advantage of some truly enchanting holiday offerings featuring the work of area union members. From Charles Dickens' immortal "A Christmas Carol" at Ford’s Theatre (AFM, IATSE) to the National Symphony Orchestra performing Handel’s "Messiah" (AFGE, AFM, IATSE, UNITE HERE, AGMA) at the Kennedy Center or just a stroll through ZooLights (AFGE) at the National Zoo, there are options for all ages and price ranges, and we thank our D.C. union brothers and sisters for helping to make them all sparkle.
