Gallery: Honoring Simon, Reston On Their Big Days

Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Sen. Tim Kaine and other dignitaries were among the hundreds of people who came to Reston’s Lake Anne Plaza Saturday afternoon to wish founder Robert E. Simon a happy 100th birthday and Reston a happy 50th birthday.

What will the next 50 years bring?

“We will have to just sit around and see,” Simon said before cutting the cake at the Founder’s Day celebration.

Reston Now will have full coverage of the weekend events on Monday.
