Spring Into Action With These Outdoor Activities in Alexandria!
March 4, 2019
With Spring coming in hot, go outside to feel the inspiration of the season!
When you live in a ROSS Alexandria apartment, there are endless opportunities to experience the freshness of the new season. Whether it’s participating in the Second Saturday Art Walk, jamming out to some tunes, or shopping at a local farmers market, the list of things to do is nothing short of entertaining. With all of these events to choose from, here is a short list of Alexandria’s top adventure’s for the Spring.
Second Saturday Art Walk
This Saturday, indulge in artistic works and performances at the Second Saturday Art Walk. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., experience the lively nature of these events through inspiring dance, cabaret, comedy, musical and theatrical performances. Dive in deeper by participating in classes they offer for the art of mixology or learning about cuisines from around the globe. Before you head home for the night, take time to tour the various art exhibitions across nine galleries that house some of the region’s finest art work.
Once 5 p.m. hits, head over to the After Work Concert Series put on every second Friday of the month. This will give you an opportunity to explore some fresh new tunes at the Historic Lloyd House, hosted by the Folklore Society of Greater Washington and The Office of Historic Alexandria. Hailing from both Brooklyn, New York and Sevilla, Spain, Julia Patinella will be the artist in residence performing Andalusian music!
Another way to get in the groove and feel the beat is at the 42nd Annual Memorial Day Jazz Festival. Spend the end of the month at Waterfront Park dancing to the upbeat and funky tunes you’ll find at this festival. This is a free event where you are welcome to pack a picnic basket and blanket. But of course, food will be available for purchase for those who want to try something new!
When you start to run out of meal prep ideas, that means it’s time to hit refresh on your grocery shopping list.
