The month of July is a special time of year for every American. The month almost begins with the day we show the world how proud we are to be independent and free. We take a moment to honor those that made America what it is today and we do that with fireworks, cookouts and gatherings. Even though July 4th is the major holiday in the month, there are a lot of other great events going on as well near Reines RV.
One of the largest firework displays in Virginia is held on the 4th in Manassas. It’s an All-American sand party held in Old Town Manassas and sponsored by the city. Bring your best lawn chairs and blankets and get ready for the show. There will be nonstop live entertainment starting at 4PM throughout the streets of the Old Town train depot, the Manassas Museum and Harris Pavilion. The games and rides start up at 3PM so get there early. There will also be great food and concessions as well as the red, white and blue hayride.
But that’s not all. If your passion is for baking, you might have what it takes to take home the blue ribbon for the best Apple Pie Baking Contest. Have fun competing with your neighbors for a $100 gift card to downtown Manassas. Second place wins $75, and third is $50.
Get your kids in on the celebration and sign up to be a part of the Chilren’s Bicycle Rodeo. This is your children’s chance to show their American Red White and Blue colors by decorating their bicycles. Prizes will be given out for the best decorated bike.
Want to see if your dad can win first prize in this year’s watermelon eating contest? Of course you do and taking plenty of pictures is a must. Dads sign up to get messy, have fun and win some great prizes. All age groups are welcomed to participate in the Watermelon Eating Contest. There are lots of fun activities this month so get out there with your Manassas RV full of friends and family and make memories that will last a lifetime.
