Top of the mornin’ to ya! This year’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebration kicks off in a brand new fashion: with the Potomac River Running Lucky Leprechaun 5K on Saturday, March 16, at 8:30am!

Start your Irish-palooza with a festive 3.1 mile run around Reston Town Center.  The 5k course winds its way on the roads surrounding Reston Town Center, and let it be noted – with a 60 minute time limit en tow.  If that sounds daunting, don’t worry! The average time to walk a mile is 20 minutes, and with this track being just over three miles maintaining an easy pace should get you through! Who knows, maybe you’ll even find some gold.*

Stroller-bound wee ’uns: unfortunately this course is not stroller friendly, so you will have to wait for your care-taker at the finish line; we recommend waiting with another care-taker. For the slightly older tykes, there will be a free Kid’s Fun Run at 9:30am – registration for this portion of the event will take place on the morning of March 16 in front of the Pavilion.

Like proof of your commitment to fitness and all things St. Patty’s?  Register early and snag some sweet swag in the form of a Lucky Leprechaun t-shirt: www.prraces.com/luckyleprechaun.

Ok, so you just ran an incredible race on a Saturday morning through the wilds of Reston. It was harrowing. It was revitalizing. It was the fuel for your healthy Irish heart! And, not to mention it gave some early repentance for the day’s coming food and beverage choices…

So, what are you going to do next?!

Stomp across that finish line and get refueled Emerald Isle-style with the Clyde’s of Reston St. Patrick’s Day Celebration – that’s what you’re going to do! At 10am get your fill with the Bacon & Kegs Irish breakfast, then enjoy Clyde’s food, Guinness beer, and Irish folk dancing all day long.  Kid’s get in the spirit too with activities to keep ‘em going all the live long day, including festive face painting and a moon bounce.

Raise a pint, dance a jig, twirl a lass, and eat your fill. This celebration raves on rain or shine on Saturday, March 16, 10am – 11pm. Sláinte!

*Reston Town Center does not maintain or manage the existence of gold or its distribution in or around the 5K loop area. That is left for participating leprechauns, rainbows, or Brangelina to bestow upon who they wish.

Yes, chilly winds blow and snowflakes flurry down from the skies, but according to Punxsutawney Phil spring is on it’s way! The celebrity groundhog and Seer of the Seasons did NOT see his shadow, which means we get to dodge an additional six weeks of winter.

We’re welcoming the budding season with open arms here at Reston Town Center, and want to remind you of all of the fun things coming your way!

Embrace your Irish at Clyde's St. Patrick's Day Celebration!

Once again one of Reston’s favorite festivals, Taste of Reston, will be lining Market Street with booths from dozens of area restaurants, live entertainment, kids activities and more!

Taste of Reston, Northern Virginia’s largest outdoor food festival, takes place Friday-Saturday, June 17-18 at Reston Town Center.  The event features delectable samplings from the region’s favorite eateries, live music both days, beer and wine gardens, fun and games at the Taste of Reston Carnival, competition at the Guns n’ Hoses Chili Cook-off, and lively advice from the Living Well Expo.

Brave Contestants in the "Guns and Hoses Chili Cook-off"

In addition to the restaurant samplings, the “Guns n’ Hoses Chili Cook-off” will pit area cops against firemen – the ultimate battle of the heroes – in Reston’s spiciest competition.  Together, a panel of five judges vote using the following categories: Aroma, Color, Consistency, Taste, and Aftertaste to determine the “overall best chili”. In addition to the award for best chili according to the taste tester judges, Taste of Reston attendees vote for the “People’s Choice.”  Last year the cops took it, defeating the firemen in what was certainly a heated battle.  Who will take it this year?  Will the hoses find retribution against the blazing guns?

The Living Well Expo is taking place during Taste of Reston at Reston Town Center! Presenting entertainment for families and children, exercise and cooking demonstrations, a Smoothie Shakedown, and Radio Disney! In their second year, they are the area’s first regional Health Expo, showcasing local and regional health organizations that will inspire you and your family to live well!
