Holiday


My daughter is mildly obsessed with Christmas lights, and I must admit that I am an enabler.  I’m a white light and garland kind of girl, but there is something fun about an absolutely tacky house.  It is dark so early these days that we are often in the car after the sun sets, and I’m constantly pointing out houses for her to check out.  I just love the intake of breath at each and every house.

Although she likes any kind of light display, I wanted to really blow her mind.  I asked our MOMS Club chat if they knew of any local displays that went overboard (in a good way).  I had some great responses.  The first that we checked out was 1610 N Abingdon St in Arlington.  It is fantastic!  You have to get out of the car to get the full effect.  There is a train set on the porch, a Santa and reindeer on the roof, and a tree with candy canes for the kids in the yard- plus tons more.  Totally over the top, but tasteful (a difficult combination).

Another mom posted about  Holly’s Tacky Christmas Lights.  Holly Zell, the creator of the site, takes pictures of the tackiest light displays in the area, primarily focusing on Fairfax County.   Check it out to see tons of addresses.

Here are some other “tacky” treats in the area- let me know if you know of any others!

 

  • 1713 N. Quebec St, Arlington
  • 5604 Hereford Ct, Alexandria
  • 5601 Hereford Ct, Alexandria
  • 8505 N Roosevelt St, Falls Church
  • 510 East Broad St, Falls Church

Ready to head out with your kids and load up on the loot?  My husband says that Halloween is when when he learned about taxes.  His dad took a portion of his candy, and called it the candy tax.  I am so using that this year!

Trick or treating traditionally take place after sundown on Halloween night.  There is no official time mandated by the city or county in Arlington as there is in many areas in the country.

You don’t have a neighborhood ideal for trick or treating?  Head to the mall-  Ballston Common mall.  From 5pm – 7pm, stop by the food court to pick up your free Halloween trick-or-treating bag, and get a list of participating stores for trick-or-treating.  Then, visit the retailers for treats.  Last year there was also face painting, balloon sculptures, and much more located throughout the mall.

Another indoor option is Fashion Centre Pentagon City.   Look for the Jack-O-Lantern on participating retailer storefronts.

Many people also head to other neighborhoods for trick or treating.  If trick or treating is not widespread in your neighborhood, ask friends if you can go with them.

Happy Halloween!

Wow- so much going on this weekend!  Better yet, it is going to feel like fall and be sunny all weekend.  Get out and enjoy it!  KidFriendly DC has a fantastic post about more Halloween related events coming up, so be sure to check it out as well.

1:30pm & 4:00pm @ Imagination Stage, Bethesda, MD

Mr. Toad, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Badger go on a wild musical ride based on the book by Kenneth Grahame.  Appropriate for ages 4 and older.

 


Although there are no fireworks blasting off from Arlington, there are many great spots where you can view the National Mall fireworks.

Air Force Memorial is located on Columbia Pike by the Navy Annex.  There is a free Air Force Band concert beginning at 8pm.  The closest metro stations are Pentagon and Pentagon City.  It’s not too bad of a walk.  You can also park at Navy Annex parking lots or park at Pentagon Mall and walk over.

Gateway Park is a 3-acre park in Rosslyn just across the Key Bridge from Georgetown.  Bonus of restrooms at the park!

Gravelly Point is a great spot because it is directly across the river from the National Mall show, and reflection of the fireworks in the Potomac is amazing.  It is a fairly spacious grassy area along the Mount Vernon Trail.  No glass bottles or alcohol are allowed anywhere along the Parkway.  If you decide to drive, reaching the parking lot can be difficult. Head south on GW Parkway until you reach Reagan National Airport.  At the airport, circle back to head north onto the Parkway towards the 14th Street Bridge.  About a quarter of mile before the bridge, turn right into the parking area.  Parking in the lot is difficult as there are minimal spots, and bicycling and metro are great alternative options.  Crystal City metro is around a 20 minute walk along the Mt. Vernon Trail.  You can also take the Reagan National airport metro station, but you do have to walk through the airport and parking lots.

The Iwo Jima Memorial is also near the Rosslyn Metro station.  Iwo Jima is only around 5 blocks from the station.  As with all of these spots, you have to get there early to get a good spot!   Some people get there as early as 4pm.  Bring a blanket and picnic to pass the time.

Key BridgeAlthough there is no seating on the bridge, you can stand on the sidewalks.  There are pedestrian walkways on either side of the bridge to watch the show.

Lady Bird Johnson Park is a little tougher to get to than some of the other spots, but it is less crowded and has really great views.   Take the Arlington Cemetery metro station, and walk the bike path down toward the Columbia Island Marina.  Restrooms are open.  If you want to drive, head south on GW Parkway and turn right into Marina after signs for Lyndon B. Johnson Memorial Grove and Columbia Island Marina (before the Humpback Bridge).

Mount Vernon Trail  Yes, Gravely Point is a great spot, but there are many other places along the Mount Vernon Trail to watch the fireworks.  Simply walk along the trail and stake out a spot free of trees.

Another option is the Falls Church fireworks!  The show is at George Mason High School, with live music starting at 7pm, and fireworks will follow at 9:20pm.
