It’s not too often that an event comes across our desk that truly defies categorization. And so we tend to file events like this under Never-Mind-The-Details-Just-Make-Sure-You-Go. We all know that a fantastic summer is full of outdoor festivals, grilled amazingness, and casual warm-weather shopping. Father’s Day weekend means time with kids and family, and that perfectly warm weather that drives you outside for juicy burgers and brightly colored popsicles. Well, the Village of Cross Keys Summer Sun & Fun event (which starts on Thursday and runs through Father’s Day) has all of that (really, all of that) and more. Much, much more. A strolling balloonist. A barbershop quartet. Tarot card readings. Free yoga. Flag Day’s history told by storytellers in period dress. An ice cream social. Grilling tips from the experts at Whole Foods. Cupcake decorating for kids. Do we really need to go on? Probably not, but we will. Because seriously, Cross Keys was already far and away one of our top shopping hot spots; but this time, they’ve really outdone themselves.
By offering Summer Sun & Fun all weekend, the Village of Cross Keys has a lot to handle. After all, it’s not just Father’s Day this weekend. It’s also Flag Day and Friday the 13th—kind of motley trifecta of semi-holidays (when’s the last time you actually noticed that it was Flag Day, really?). But as a pre-emptive strike against potential Friday bad luck, they’re filling the day with “good vibes” activities like a free yoga class, tarot card readings, and an ice cream social. After all, as the folks at Cross Keys told us: “every day is a lucky day if you get to have ice cream!” We couldn’t agree more. It’s also lucky if you get in some fab shopping at places like Williams-Sonoma, Ruth Shaw, and Pied Piper. Of course there’s plenty more where that came from, and a stop by Cross Keys any time this weekend will provide all of that and more.
Sun & Fun events at the Village of Cross Keys begin this Thursday, June 12 and continue through Father’s Day (Sunday, June 15th). The Village of Cross Keys is located at 5100 Falls Road. For more information, visit www.villageofcrosskeys.com
