Each year, the City of Fairfax community band gives its youngest fans a chance to try their hand at the shiny, twisty and just plain loud instruments in the ensemble. The group’s Children’s Concert event begins with an “instrument petting zoo” at 6:30 p.m. on July 16 and includes a parade, opportunity to conduct the band and free ice cream and balloons. A youth-oriented concert program begins at 7:30 p.m. and includes music from popular movies such as “Star Trek” and “Jurassic Park,” plus Disney classics “Frozen” and “Aladdin.”
The event is scheduled to take place in the Veterans Amphitheater just outside Fairfax City Hall at 10455 Armstrong Street in Fairfax. For more information, visit www.fairfaxband.org.
