Tonight: Washington Nationals’ Racing Presidents Visit Reston Town Center

by RestonNow.com December 13, 2017 at 10:15 am 7 Comments

The Washington Nationals will bring out their Racing Presidents today at Reston Town Center.

During the fourth inning of every Nationals home game, Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Herbert Hoover race in what has become a fixture of games since 2006.

The presidents are introduced individually when they enter the park and they run along the track and turn for a final sprint along the first base foul line. This year, the race featured the original “Rushmore Four,” restoring a traditional lineup that competed in earlier races.

At Reston Town Center, the presidents will entertain guests at Fountain Square around the skating rink. The event will run from 5 – 7 p.m. and will include entertainment and giveaways.

    I cannot attend this event tonight.

    Half of these mascots like the owners of RTC are all in favor of oppressing people (paid parking).

    OK maybe I am getting carried away.

    I wouldn’t apply today’s standard to the way of life 200 years ago.

    That being said I am still boycotting the event, bc paid parking at RTC is strictly a money grab.

    • Life

      It’s free to park there after 5pm. Just saying….

      • OneReally

        Still boycotting until its free 24/7. Just saying……..

    • The Constitutionalist

      At least they oppress us all equally. Unlike the Democrats.

        sigh. Sad but true.

    It will seem like the good ole days of Valley Forge, won’t it, Mr. Washington?
