Neighborhood Day set to bring the community together

April 12, 2013 by  

Neighborhood Day 2013 is taking place in Arlington on May 11, and the area has come up with several ways to mark the event aimed at bringing the community together.

Various parts of the city will be holding their own events, which will include block parties, children’s activities and games, picnics, cleanup parties, food drives, and neighborhood walkabouts. Two specific events taking place on Neighborhood Day are a walkathon and a family fun day.

The 18th Walk for Animals will take place in Bluemont Park and will be raising funds for the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. The walk will be followed by an entertainment festival.

Family Fun Day, meanwhile, will be held in Alcova Heights Park. This free event will feature inflatable houses, reptiles, make-and-take crafts, and games. Lunch packs will be available for purchase for $3.

Many of the Arlington neighborhoods will likely be working with their local printing company to prepare for whatever events they have planned. This might include banner printing services to draw attention to their event or flyers to advertise it to the wider community.

The Walk for Animals will take place from 8:30 am – 11:00 am. Registration is $25 in advance or $40 on the day of the walk, and those who register in advance will receive a T-shirt. For more information, contact Sally Harte at 703-931-9241 x216.

For those who prefer the idea of the Family Fun Day, it will take place from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and is a free event. For more information, contact Mary McMullen at 703-228-4711.
