Obviously, different ideas will appeal to different residents in different age groups. But we are open for ideas. If you have any “must-dos” of summer (even better: with a photo of you/your family participating in said event), email us at [email protected]ow.com and we will consider it.
Reston Summer Bucket List Item No. 11: Free Kids Shows
Before naptime is a great time for the preschool set to take in a show. Reston’s got a small circuit of free entertainment for the tots, so get going.
On Mondays through October, Mr. Kick Knack plays at 10:30 a.m. in the Reston Town Center Pavilion.
Mr. Knick Knack (real name Steve Rossi) has been singing and playing around Northern Virginia for years. He plays guitar and sings songs like My Heart is Like a Family and I’m So Glad — it’s all happy, danceable and appropriate for the smallest kids.
Over at Lake Anne Plaza, there are still two more weeks of the Tuesday morning kids shows. These shows (also free) are from 11 to 11:45 a.m. in the area near the climbing structure by Lake Anne Coffee House.
