Weekend Watch: Kids' fun at Celebrate Fairfax & Imagination Bethesda

Filed Under:

Two weekend events - one in VA and the other in MD - have loads of child-centric fun on the schedule: Celebrate Fairfax (tonight through Sunday) and Imagination Bethesda (Saturday only).

Celebrate Fairfax is a huge blow-out, complete with rock stars and fireworks. But they'll also have a "children's avenue" of hands-on crafts and activities, a petting zoo, a climbing wall, model train exhibit, carnival rids, live entertainment, and lots of food. Expect big crowds, and plan accordingly!

Imagination Bethesda takes place downtown, on Woodmont Ave., and is specifically focused on kids. There will be face painters, balloonists, live entertainment, arts and crafts activities, children's yoga classes, and lots of booths where you can get info about early childhood enrichment programs and businesses in and around Bethesda. Local restaurants will also have food booths, with everything from Indian to chili dogs, pizza, smoothies, and ice cream.

Enjoy!
