Instead of doing a bunch of Facebook posts, I thought I'd do a short blog post of all the fun events going on Thursday, Friday and this weekend.  It seems that the weekends are already jammed packed with things to do and it isn't even summer yet!!

Help break a Guinness World Record!
From the Manassas City website:  On Saturday, May 4, 2013 the City of Manassas is embarking on the Big Day of Service in the Weems community. As part of the day’s events, and to encourage community spirit, the City is going to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest game of red light/green light. The City of Manassas is an advocate of healthy living and encourages healthy outdoor activity and red light/green light is a simple, healthy outdoor activity that is fun for the whole family.

The current world record for red light/green light is held by Ford Motor Company with 451 participants playing at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, on Sept. 18, 2012. The City would like to go way over this number of participants and needs the public’s help.
