Who said playing with chalk was an activity exclusive to children? Artists of all ages can create their own masterpiece this weekend at Reston's Chalk on the Water Festival.

June 7-8: Chalk on the Water Festival

This weekend, you can unleash your inner artist on the streets of Reston, without getting in any trouble for it, at the first-ever Chalk on the Water Festival. By reserving a “plot” of brick space, participants of all ages can let their imaginations run loose as they collectively transform Lake Anne Plaza into a chalk art gallery at the two-day festival. In celebration of the community’s 50th anniversary, artist Michael Kirby, founder of public art group Murals of Baltimore, will create a 3D street painting titled “Reston Through Time.”

June 6: Free Dulcimer Concert

The event is part of the historic site’s Free First Fridays program and will include tours of the house, games and story time for preschoolers.
