Looking for Something to do On the 4th of July?

If you're looking for something to do on the 4th of July, there are several things to do in the area which would also include helping some of the local Democratic candidates. I have based this list off of information I received from the Springfield Magisterial District Committee as well as a few other sources.

Fairfax City Parade
When: July 4. Line up at 9 am.
Where: Meet in the City of Fairfax, in the large lot near the Fairfax County Courthouse. (Enter the line-up area via Main Street and Judicial Drive. Turn left on Page Avenue and follow the road to the large parking lot.)

Also, the Town of Vienna holds a festival every 4th of July at its community center which usually attracts a good sized crowd and several elected officials. Especially considering that there will be a good race in the 35th House of Delegates race this year which covers that area, I imagine folks will be paying attention to this festival.

If you have other plans for the 4th, you should also remember that there will be a big picnic on July 5th which will feature a lot of the Democrats running for the House of Delegates. The picnic will be held at Fort Hunt Park from 1pm - 4pm, but there will also be a service action from 10am - 1pm for those who might want to give a little extra back to our community.
