Contributing writer: Carmen Thorpe–
If you enjoy the theatre, fine arts, hands on activities; helping a cause, writing short stories, and celebrations then this is the post for you! This seemingly endless winter can make you feel a bit stir crazy; which may have a hand in our cabin fever, but we can break the cycle by heading out into our communities, poking around, and seeing what’s going on. Well, we took care of the searching for you, and found some pretty awesome events that will be taking place this weekend through the next.
Spring will come; we promise you this! Until then, here is a list –as promised– of some fun, inspirational, and heart-warming activities going on in some of the communities in Northern Virginia.

City of Manassas: First Friday in Historic Downtown gives you the opportunity to see some fresh art from local artists
