April Fools Day, Reston Style

The Mercury Fountain at Reston Town Center was full of inflatable balls on Wednesday as part of the town center’s annual April Fool’s Day prank.

Meanwhile, over on Modern Reston, the site posted a very convincing news story — but alas, a photoshopped prank as well — about a state-of-the-art monorail approved for the revamped Lake Anne Plaza. While the area surrounding Lake Anne is slated for a massive overhaul, residents and visitors will not be shuttled via an elevated train “that will provide shade” since all the trees will be removed.

Also, Reston Now is on the short list of nominees for the new Pulitzer Prize category “Hyperlocal Websites.” Just kidding — April Fools! (and thanks for reading regardless)
