Reston, VA

A celebration to celebrate Reston’s upcoming Founder’s Day will take place on April 18 from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. While most of the activities are familiar for frequent visitors and Restonians — including a parade at Lake Anne Plaza — this year’s event features a float parade.

For this year’s celebration, the Reston Historic Trust & Museum is asking community members to build mini mobile floats encompassing the theme “Reston: Past, Present and Future,” according to the event page.

Everyone is welcome to create a float but they must be three-feet wide and five-feet long, or smaller, the page said, adding that they can not be motorized and should be based on something like a wagon or skateboard.

Participation in the parade is free, but people must register beforehand and read the community guidelines.
