This year’s Centreville Day celebration will be held Saturday, Sept. 26, in Centreville’s Historic District. It’s sponsored and organized by the Centreville Community Foundation (CCF) and is a full day of fun for all ages.
It starts with a parade featuring the Centreville High Marching Band, as well as various groups including Cox Farms, Boy and Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Brownies, youth sports teams, the Centreville Regional Library and the Knights of Columbus Color Guard, which always leads the parade. In addition, children are welcome to decorate their bicycles, scooters, wagons, etc., and march in the parade, as well.
After that, the scene switches to the Historic District, off Route 29 and Braddock Road and near St. John’s Episcopal Church. There, attendees will be able to enjoy a wide variety of crafts for sale, nonprofit and business displays and exhibits and a food court featuring local restaurants.
There’ll also be children’s rides and games, live musical entertainment and the presentation of the CCF Citizen of the Year award. And residents will be able to learn about their community’s heritage, as well. Tours of several homes in the Historic District will be available, and Civil War re-enactors will also entertain the crowd.
This one-day, outdoor, community festival is a great way for friends and families to enjoy themselves and meet their neighbors. Free shuttles will be available from satellite parking lots and, as always, admission to Centreville Day is free.
