(Updated at 10:15 a.m.) Racing piglets, carnival games and food galore have people flocking to the Arlington County Fair.
Visitors can expect to see some new additions, such as a recycling initiative and the the fair’s first 5K Run/Walk since 1984. This year’s outdoor stage offerings have been expanded as well, with performances by local bands all weekend instead of just on Saturday. More of the popular Harlem Wizards shows have been added, plus D.C. United players will be taking to the turf field every day for practice and to host giveaways.
“We’re excited to have more people playing this year and more hours,” said Arlington County Fair Chairperson Tiffany Kudravetz
Anyone heading to the fair tonight can take in an outdoor showing of the family friendly movie “Brave.” Saturday’s outdoor movie is “Here Comes the Boom.”
