This weekend Downtown is booming with events that will keep you healthy, happy, and feeling great! On Saturday, March 24 the MARCH ON LITTER will be taking place. What a great way to help out the environment by making your community trash free. The event takes place from 9am-12n, starting at the Community Market. Refreshments and all supplies needed will be provided.
After you have finished cleaning up the community, make your way over to Catalano's Delicatessen for the Urban Art Show from 10am-6pm. Six local artisans will be selling their pieces during the day and there will also be music from a local DJ. This is a great opportunity to relax, enjoy beautiful art, and get to know some new faces in the community.
If you are searching for some great entertainment and a break from the outdoors, the Opera on the James and Academy of Fine Arts will be presenting The Three Little Pigs from 2-4pm. This is a fun performance that friends and family of all ages will be able to enjoy. Showtime is at 3pm and tickets are $5 each.
Later in the day James River Yoga on Jefferson Street will be hosting 108 Sun Salutes from 6-8pm. This event is a charity benefit for the Matenwa Community Learning Center in Haiti. If you are not very familiar with Yoga, a Sun Salute is a combination of 12 postures performed in a fluid and graceful movement. It is not required that those who attend complete the 108 Sun Salutes, just as many as your heart desires. Following the practice a vegetarian feast catered by Rivermont Pizza will be provided. A suggested donation of $15 would greatly be appreciated. For more information contact Donna Everhart at (540) 875-9642.
On Sunday, March 25 The Academy of Fine Arts Joy and Lynch Christian Warehouse Theater will be showing The Elixir of Love, a comedy by Donizetti. This fun, energetic, and love filled performance will capture your heart. Be sure to check it out and invite your friends to join you!
So gather your friends and family and head Downtown this weekend! There is lots to do and endless fun for all.
Have a wonderful weekend,
