Local Peeps Contest — In the tradition of The Washington Post’s Peeps contest, Chesapeake Chocolates at Lake Anne Plaza will be holding its own competition. Celebrate Reston with your original Peeps diorama. Represent your favorite view of Reston with the confections in a shoebox-sized creation. Drop it off at the store at 11426 Washington Plaza West, and they will display it through April 4 in their store. One diorama, chosen by a panel of judges, will win a basket of goodies from Chesapeake Chocolates.
