Since 1935. A traditional 18th-century celebration lights up the night sky as the Grand Illumination, Colonial Williamsburg’s gift to the nation, begins the Historic Area’s holiday season. Revelers crowd the Historic Area to celebrate the yuletide tradition—begun in 1935 — with an afternoon and evening of holiday merriment and 18th- century style fireworks.
