The vendors along King Street in Old Town Alexandria want everyone to come out for a fall block party this weekend! Bring the whole family for arts and crafts, raffles, treats, beverages, and children’s activities.
From all-day happy hour at Vermillion to face painting and a visit with a fire truck, the businesses of King Street are rolling out the red carpet for visitors this coming Saturday, November 3. There will be plenty of activities, free samples, and live music throughout the day as you re-discover the streets of Old Town Alexandria.
