The City continues to expand program opportunities for every member of family at any skill and interest level.  This fall, youth can take advantage of new creative arts classes and Kids Night Out programs; new fitness classes including outdoor Zumba and Tabata for adults; and expanded opportunities for boomers. 

Join me for the 13th Annual Alexandria King Street Art Festival on September 19-20 featuring paintings, life-size sculptures, jewelry, ceramics and more on the converted City’s historic main street into an outdoor art gallery. On November 27, kick-off the holiday season with your extended family by attending the official lighting of the City’s holiday tree with a visit from Santa, caroling and musical entertainment.

I continue to be active in Recreation Department programs, and I encourage all residents of Alexandria to take advantage of the activities and facilities the Department offers. Save this Program Guide and refer to it often.
