We are gearing up for a fun-filled day of celebrating the birth of our great nation at David Lafleur.We are thrilled to have David performing folk, blues, bluegrass,traditional Americana andAppalachian music on dobro, dulcimer, mandolin and guitar at the park.This is one Virginia outdoor concert you won’t want to miss.
In the afternoon you are invited to join park rangers for a game of “town ball” the precursor to America’s favorite past time: and you might want to stay late to take a full moon walk at 6:30.
