The sounds of jazz return to Lake Anne Plaza Saturday at the 8th Annual Lake Anne Jazz & Blues Festival.
The free event offers fun for the whole family, with notable regional and national jazz musicians. The festival runs from 2 to 8 p.m.
There will be cornhole for the kids and beer and wine for adults, featuring Champion Missile IPA from Charlottesville and Bells Oberon Ale from Michigan.
The Initiative for Public Art Rest (IPAR) will have two displays/activities at the festival. One is a mural by Reston artist Abbie Fundling. People of all ages are invited to add their touch of color to the mural.
The other project is Before I Die by artist Candy Chang. Before I Die is an interactive temporary public art project that invites people to share their personal aspirations in public spaces.
The original wall was created in February 2011 on an abandoned house in Candy Chang’s neighborhood in New Orleans. Since then, more than 525 Before I Die walls have been created in 70 countries in over 30 languages.
This year’s musical headliner is the Adrian Duke Project. Duke is a New Orleans-influenced pianist, composer and vocalist.
