A block party to mark 32 years of the Old Firehouse Center serving the community will be held on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the facility, located at 1440 Chain Bridge Road.
Once home to the McLean Volunteer Fire Department, the facility in the 1990s began service as an adjunct to the McLean Community Center.
The festivities will include live music, street performances, concessions, amusements, air-brushed tattoos and a living-history exhibit, plus free popcorn, cotton candy and snow cones. Attendees are encouraged to bring a bicycle for donation to Wheels to Africa.
Admission is free.
