There’s been a lot of talk about Fall being right around the corner but we’re not ready to give up on Summer just yet. We’ve got a month of summer left to enjoy wearing flips flops and shorts while having an ice cream at the Old Town market square. There are several outdoor events in Alexandria to keep you entertained until it’s time to get out the pumpkins and start raking leaves.
Friday, August 24, Lee-Fendall House is hosting the final Trivia night fundraiser at 7 pm in their beautiful garden area. The cost is $5.00 per person and that includes a beer or glass of wine.

Saturday, Sept 1, Radiance Yoga will offer free all-level flow yoga on the market stage (301 King) the first Saturday of every month at Old Town Farmer’s Market. Classes will begin at 8 am until 8:50 am. Bring your mat and water. Be sure to bring your market bags, so you can purchase fresh peaches and corn at the Farmer’s market after your yoga session.
“Summer is a state of mind” and I hope your end of summer days are filled with lots of laughter.
