Fort Belvoir Chapel is reflected in an ornament at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony Dec. 1.

Closures, new traffic pattern Belvoir’s annual tree-lighting is at 5 p.m. Friday at Belvoir Chapel.

This year, the festivities continue at Specker Field House for Santa’s Workshop, until 8 p.m., for food, fun and games.

In preparation for the holiday event, Specker’s parking lot is closed from 9 p.m. Thursday to 9 p.m. Friday. Additionally, the Fort Belvoir Police Department will change the traffic flow on 12th Street, Friday, to support the tree-lighting.

12th Street will be blocked off from the light at the chapel to the side street of Specker Field House. South Post CDC families picking up children will need to turn left into the Body Shop’s parking lot, which will be the only open route to the CDC.
