On Saturday, April 25th from 5-8 pm at George Mason's Arlington campus is the annual "green festival" and Operation Rain Barrel Auction.
This year, the theme is "Go GA-GA for Green!"
APS and the CCPTA partner each year with George Mason to run the auction of rain barrels designed and painted by Arlington Public School students. The rain barrels each year have been stunning and tremendously popular. All proceeds from the event are split among the CCPTA Scholarships fund, the early identification program for APS students to attend George Mason University after graduation and Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE).
Entertainment includes the Taylor Elementary Choir and the Gunston Glee Club.
The event is great for the entire family, and wholesome, healthy food will be for sale, $10 for adults and $5 for children.
