Fall Festival

Year-of-the-Flood-final

Plan to join us for a Fall Festival the whole family will enjoy!

What: Frog Pond’s 7th Annual Fall Festival – Celebrating the Year of the Flood!

Where: 7204 Harrison Lane, Alexandria VA 22306

When: Saturday, October 22, 10 am – 12 noon

Suggested donation: $5

This family friendly festival will offer entertainment, light food and drink along with arts, crafts and other kid-friendly activities. Food will include culinary delights from the homelands of our multicultural staff – including bread made on an outdoor stove made of stones!

Kids will enjoy facing painting, natural (temporary) henna tattoos, pumpkin decorating, a tire rolling contest and more. All will enjoy our drum circle, story telling and tours of the property and grounds. Additional activities to be announced.

This year we celebrate how our current families, alumni families, and community supporters rallied to overcome the TIDES that came through our building and destroyed our lower level classroom in January 2016. We could not be here without so many of you. Please plan to visit, see the restored classroom, and celebrate how Frog Pond has always kept its head above water, since 1998 and counting!
