Come Play Some Drums Tonight!

Tonight at 7:00 p.m. there is a drum circle at Lake Fairfax in Herndon, VA. It will take place by the lake near the dock. To get there, you just pass the water park, and the drum circle will be before the picnic areas by the merry-go-round. Feel free to bring some extra instruments if you have them and something to sit on. Get ready to play some beats!

Herndon Celebrates Farmers’ Market Week

Governor McDonnell has designated this week, August 1st – 7th as Farmers’ Market Week. The market takes place in the 700 block of Lynn Street in front of the red caboose. An array of fresh fruits, flowers, vegetables, meats, jams, cheeses, eggs, jellies, plants, salsa, fish, and home baked goods will be for sale. All of the items are homemade, homegrown, or prepared by the vendor at the market.

While the market in Herndon runs every Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to noon from May 6th to October 28th, this week has some special activities.
