Popcorn, Movies, Pools - A Perfect Summer Combination!

family dive in moviesThe more things change, the more they stay the same. In fact, the summer fun that makes Reston a great place to grow up hasn’t changed much over the last 40 years, according to people who grew up in Reston… and decided to stay.

For example, Restonian Lisa Kelly’s absolute favorite activity as a child was movie night at the RA pools. Now her children share the same love of that weekly summer ritual. “We love it because it is a family friendly event that is free and fun! It’s a unique way to watch a movie outside, and we look forward to it each year,” said Kelly.

It really is fun! There are plenty more opportunities to get in on it (that is, assuming you aren’t coming down to Lake Anne for the summer concert series — it’s a hard call.)

Family Dive In Movies

Reston Association hosts the Family Dive In movies. Always free, always fun. RA provides the popcorn and drinks, but you need to bring your favorite float. Movie titles are advertised at the event location, but does it really matter what the movie is? There is free popcorn! Movie nights will be canceled in the event of rain, so let’s hope for a dry summer. Contact or call 703-435-6577 for more information or weather related cancellations.
