Reston, VA

Bert the Nerd/Courtesy Bert the NerdEvery weekday in August, Reston Now will be offering suggestions for a Summer Bucket List — things to do, places to check out and activities to try in and around Reston before summer’s end.

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] 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.

Aug. 18 features the Unicycle Country Lady. Aug. 25 will feature Bert the Nerd’s comedy, juggling and other cool stuff.
