“Run, run, fast as you can! Can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!”

Can YOU run like the Gingerbread Man?

Once you’ve stocked the refrigerator with your turkey and pumpkin pie leftovers, kick off the 2011 holiday season by running the inaugural Gingerbread Man Mile for Kids!, an event that we are sure the whole family will love. Join Potomac River Running and Reston Town Center for a little bit of running and a whole lot of shopping! Registration is FREE and all donations benefit Neediest Kids.

Kids can run like the Gingerbread Man at the Kids Mile Fun Run. The course covers a 1-mile loop around Reston Town Center. Once kids finish, they can enjoy delicious gingerbread cookies.

Holidays are HERE! at Reston Town Center

After a thrilling morning of tiny tots racing down Market Street, get set for a day full of holiday festivities!  Stores open at 8 am for the early Reston Town Center shopper, and the Ice Skating rink is open all day – as is the Hyatt’s giant gingerbread village, on display in the lobby! Beginning at 11 am is the 21st Annual Reston Holiday Parade, complete with Macy’s-style balloons, floats, community groups, antique cars, and more!  From 12:30-4:30 enjoy visits and photos with Santa.  He’ll be checking his list right next to the Skate Shop before heading back out to light up Reston Town Center and the holiday tree at 6 pm.  Join him in Fountain Square for the official start of the Holiday Season, sing carols along with the Reston Chorale and hop on board  a horse-drawn carriage to round-off  wonderful wintry day!

Yes, Snowmageddon has ended, and we are now in the midst of the great meltdown. We’re looking forward to Spring and Summer at Reston Town Center, and just wanted to remind you A) of all of the fun things coming your way with the warmer weather and B) of the many opportunities to volunteer and get involved in your community with us!
