A 26-year tradition continues this month with the popular Cardboard Boat Regatta returning to Lake Accotink Park as the capstone event of the annual Springfield Days weekend festival. Whether you’re racing or just watching, it’s always a thrill to see who sinks or floats.


Boats entered in the regatta will be on display at the Lake Accotink marina starting at 10 a.m. on May 31, 2015. Judges will survey the boats from noon to 1 p.m. and determine winners in five categories.  Returning judges this year include Fairfax County Chairman Sharon Bulova, Braddock District Supervisor John Cook, and Lee District Supervisor Jeff McKay. Boat races start at 2 p.m. Food concession stands will be at the park all day selling popular treats.  Cardboard Boat Regatta souvenir t-shirts will be available for purchase for $10 while supplies last.


Due to anticipated crowds, a one-day parking fee of $4 applies to all vehicles entering Lake Accotink Park the day of the regatta. Due to the scale of the event, no vehicles will be permitted in the parking lot at the marina.


Lake Accotink Park is located at 7500 Accotink Park Road in Springfield, Va.  For more information call 703-569-0285.


2. PetFest Fun is a Feature of Springfield Days

애완동물을 사랑하는 사람들은 이 행사를 놓치지 말기를 바란다. 애완동물 애호가들을 위한 축제다.

Springfield Days is a yearly community-oriented event that features many great activities during the first weekend following Memorial Day.  In recent years, the event was expanded to include a PetFest which will take place on May 30, 2015 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at South Run Park in Springfield, VA, right behind South Run RECenter.  PetFest focuses on fun and celebrating the joy pets bring to our lives. It showcases local businesses and vendors, artists, activities, on-stage entertainment and animal rescue organizations.


Don’t miss the Blessing of the Pets and a Paws on Parade. Pet-related exhibitors include:


  • The Regional Veterinary Referral Center
  • Olde Towne Pet Resort
  • Felix & Oscar
  • South Run RECenter with an off-leash dog park
  • Fairfax County Animal Shelter


If your pup needs to cool off, let him take a splash in the doggie pools.  Then enjoy the

on-stage entertainment by Mutts Gone Nuts Comedy Show, get a free reading by our famous animal communicator, Diane Roadcap, or simply take in the activities while relaxing on a bench or a blanket while you sample some of the great food from the various food vendors that attend PetFest.


The event also focuses on adoption and rescue organizations that are at the event, in hopes that the animals they have rescued will, too, find their forever home and a loving family!

3.  Construction to Begin on Trail in Lake Accotink Park

아코팅크 호수의 산책길을 개. 보수 한다. 이 기간동안 가끔 공원이 닫을 수도 있다고 한다.

참고 하시길 바란다.

The Fairfax County Park Authority will begin construction on a project to repair and pave approximately 5,500 linear feet of the Cross County Trail in Lake Accotink Park with asphalt and/or concrete (see attached map).


The contractor, Accubid Construction Services, Inc., will be mobilizing on site on or about May 25, 2015. Access to the site will be from the Ellet Road entrance to the park. The total construction will take approximately four to six months, depending upon the weather.


Residents should expect occasional construction traffic with equipment and materials through the Ravensworth subdivision and construction equipment on the trail during the construction period. As a safety precaution, sections of the trail will be intermittently closed to users during the project and signs will be posted at adjacent trail heads accordingly.

For more information about the project contact the project manager at  [email protected] or by phone at 703-324-8629.

5. Hidden Oaks Offers Half-day Camps for Young Naturalists


Preschoolers’ creativity and imagination soar at half-day camps this June at Hidden Oaks Nature Center. Naturalists explore the woodlands and stream with children ages three to five years old making personal connections with turtles, toads and salamanders. Through short hikes, crafts, games and songs these youngest explorers enjoy connecting to nature during the first week of June.


During the second and third weeks of June, preschoolers age four to six re-create recreate storybook fun as they attend Miss Spider’s tea party and a Teddy Bear picnic. Using treasured tales for a background, naturalist-led children make the characters of the fables come alive as they meet a real hungry caterpillar and a not-so-quiet cricket at Tea Parties, Picnics and Storybooks camp.


Hidden Oaks Nature Center is located at 7701 Royce Street in Annandale, Va.  For more information and to register for these fun and educational adventures, go to http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/hidden-oaks/.
