Celebrating Independence Day the Old-Fashioned Way

Celebrating Independence Day the Old-Fashioned Way

The 4th of July is a day that reminds everyone of the rich history of America and how it became free.  In Loudoun, a great way to celebrate Independence Day is by going back to the past at Claude Moore Park, where there will be historic tours and old-fashioned pony and wagon rides.

Kids will love doing the craft projects that will be set up around in the area, and everyone in the family will enjoy old-time games. Aside from the rides and tours, there will also be nature exhibits in the park. Music will also a part of the celebration, as well as a performance of “Reptiles Alive.”

Anyone who want to celebrate the 4th of July with a historical blast from the past is invited to come to the festivities at Claude Moore Park/Lanesville Heritage Area, located at 21544 Old Vestal’s Gap Rd., Sterling. The event will start at 10:30 a.m. and last until 3:00 p.m. The admission fee is $5, and kids under 5 are free.
