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!

We have lots of shows here at Reston Town Center; movies, art exhibits and concerts abound. Creating a community with family-friendly entertainment and activities is one of our biggest priorities. Families that play together stay together, right?

One of our biggest musical events is the Concerts on the Town Series in the Pavilion on Saturday nights, June – August, hosting musicians of all styles. From big band music to bossa nova and red-hot Bayou music, along with reggge and doo-wop, you are sure to find a style that makes you want to dance along. And as you can see, most people bring picnics or lawn chairs and make an evening of it.

Of course there are lots of other performances held in the Pavilion, like Mr. Knick Knack’s morning children concerts on Mondays from 10:30-11:15am and Community Concerts like School of Rock’s performances by future rock stars-in-training on Friday nights – all free!

Bow Tie Cinemas, a four-generation family owned company, also provides several fun programs to bring any and everybody to the movies. Super Tuesdays cause a stir because all seats for regular films are only $6, and all seats for 3-D films are only $9. Meet Me at the Movies: Senior Movie Day occurs on the 4th Monday of each month and offers refreshments and door prizes before the chosen film – free for those 55+! Kids can also catch a free movie this summer on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10am with parents during Kids Club Film Series so you get the theater experience with some of their favorite popular movies. Bow Tie Cinemas haven’t left the cinephiles out either – for those who miss the good old days of movie magic, there’s the Cine Classics Series on Saturdays and Sundays at 11am with favorites like “Jaws,“ “The Sound of Music,” “Back to the Future” and “The Maltese Falcon.”

If you’re looking for something more interactive, check out Reston Town Center’s art scene. Art programs at Greater Reston Arts CenterIn its mission to engage the community in contemporary art, Greater Reston Arts Center  has interactive art exhibits, art programs, and educational programs for all ages. Receptions and gallery talks are open to the public for each new exhibit, and they have extensive youth and family programs like family gallery weekend workshops where the whole family can create art together.

So instead of sitting on the couch watching TV this summer, grab those family and friends and check out the nostalgic, creative and fun events at Reston Town Center!

Reston Celebrates Independence Day Weekend!

Kick off the 4th of July weekend with the Radio King Orchestra as part of the Reston Concerts on the Town Series! In the Pavilion, on Saturday, July 2, 7:30-10pm, settle down on your lawn chairs and picnic baskets for an evening filled with swing and big band jazz!

Next on Sunday, July 3, head back to the pavilion to hear the music created by children and youth musicians gathered from all over the globe in the 7th Annual Youth Orchestra Gala Concert, 6-10pm. Leesburg’s own Youth Music Promotion and Preservation Association (YMPPA), is a non-profit educational organization established with the mission of promoting, supporting, sponsoring, and organizing music programs for children and youth.  It is modeled after the Venezuelan system of youth orchestras, which has proved that music is an effective way to create positive change in society. Enjoy as these children share their talent and give their heart, for the purpose of improving our world and world relations.

Happy Monday! Happy Fourth! Happy early bird freedom run through Reston! Prepare yourself for the day’s massive consumption of hot dogs, potato salad, and various festive drinks, by beginning the day with Potomac River Running and the Firecracker 5K! Nothing says independence like a morning run through the sloping streets of Reston. The race will start and finish at Reston Town Center. The course is a fast loop around the Town Center area on the local roads. Join us, bring the family and begin the July 4th celebration with a run!  Commemorative, technical race t-shirts to all pre-registered runners, and food and awards after the completion of the race.  A portion of the race proceeds benefit the =PR= Award for Excellence.

There will be cash awards for the top 3 overall male and female finishers ($300, $200, $100) as well as for the top master runners ($100) and awards for the top 3 in each age group. 14 & under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, and 75 & over. For more information visit www.potomacriverrunning.com.

Before the fireworks light the sky get your American spirit revved with the patriotic tunes played by the 257th Army Band in the Pavilion Monday, July 4, 7:00pm. The “Band of the Nation’s Capital,” the 257th Army Band, boasts a proud lineage going back to the legendary Corcoran Cadets of 1883, the DC militia that inspired John Philip Sousa to compose his march of the same name. Through a series of mergers with other organizations such as the 121st Engineers in 1921, The 260th Costal Artillery Unit in 1939, and ultimately the 91st Army Band in 1959, the ensemble faithfully continues to provide musical support for the Washington DC National Guard while proudly representing both the Guard and its home city throughout the world.

Enjoy these exciting concerts and events this weekend at Reston Town Center, and from us to you, Happy Fourth of July!
