The crowds came out to the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton for its Independence Day Celebration, which was held on Saturday, July 1. Families set up their own picnics with blankets and lawn chairs on the campus green in the 90-degree heat. In addition to the fireworks, there was food, craft beer and wine, and live music provided by Shane Gamble. To beat the heat, visitors could duck into the art exhibits in the air-conditioned artist's studios at the former Lorton Prison.
