Take an evening stroll through Old Town Alexandria, Va., Saturday. The annual Historic Alexandria Candlelight Tours feature three sites this year: Gadsby's Tavern Museum, Carlyle House (shown at right) and Lee-Fendall House. A free shuttle will run between the sites throughout the evening.

The self-guided holiday tours include caroling, 18th-century dancing and hot cider at Gadsby's; a look at 19th-century decorations and costumes, choral performances and piano music at Lee-Fendall House; and a display of seasonal greens and the sounds of live period music at Carlyle House.

The tours run 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at all three sites. Tickets are $20, $15 for seniors and $5 for those age 6 to 17. Details: 703-838-4242;
