Weekend Fun: Stuff To Do 8/10-8/12

Hey guys!!! So the weekend is rapidly approaching, and that means we can all shout TGIF!!

8/10: Truckeroo:
Truckeroo is a monthly festival held June thru October at the corner of Half St. and M St., SE showcasing food trucks from the Washington, D.C. area.

Food trucks give new meaning to fast food! Each truck serves up tasty morsels on the cheap. What better way to enjoy the weekend than with food, music, crowds of people, and the beautiful weather! Come with a big appetite, you never know what kind of cuisines will be chef'ing it up!

8/11: Trillectro:
The first music festival in the district of its kind, trillectro is our way of bridging the gap between hip-hop and electronic music.
Modeled after Brooklyn's Dekalb Market, this unique and spacious venue reuses salvaged shipping containers to surround a main stage, bar areas, tents and gaming space for a dynamic retail and entertainment experience.

Summer can't get any cooler and kickass than this! I LOVE the name...fusing trill (a term hip hopers use for keeping it real) and electro (an upbeat genre of music).

Some names that will catch your ear:
Schoolboy Q
Phony Ppl
Flatbush Zombies
David Heartbreak

8/11: Old Town Boutique District Third Annual Summer Sidewalk Sale
The brick sidewalks of Old Town Alexandria, VA will be buzzing with shoppers grabbing rock bottom deals. Over 60 businesses will host unique promotional events offering deeply-discounted summer merchandise, product demonstrations and/or other special events.

Participating boutiques include:
Apple Seed
Bishop Boutique
Current Boutique
Lou Lou
Pretty People
The Shoe Hive
Zoe many more! Visit the site to see more stores!

8/12-8/18: Montgomery County Fair
Demolition derbies, monster trucks, hermit crab races, loads of farm animals and, of course, plenty of gut-busting fried foods are what make MoCo's annual fair a beloved tradition.

Enough said! Go have some fun on the rides and eat plenty of funnel cakes and popcorn!

Hope you guys have fun this weekend!
