We are heading into fall/pumpkin/spooky/outdoor season! Whatever you want to call it, we have several fun ways to play this month. Check ‘em out!
We are SO EXCITED about The Arches, the new public art in Memorial Bridge Park along the Roanoke River Greenway. This space has been transformed into a place for music, theatre, art, and relaxation. And to kick off its unveiling, Virginia Children’s Theatre is hosting free performances each Saturday in September! If your kiddo is musically inclined, take a look at our Movement and Music class designed to get kids moving to the beat of their own drum (literally!).
Our department offers yoga classes for every experience level. If you’re looking for a consistent yoga practice, we recommend either the Zentastic or EveryBODY yoga options. If you want to try something a little funky and new, we have Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) yoga or Pints and Poses classes that are sure to entertain.
Paddling is one of the most popular water sports, and it’s great for all experience levels! We have a sunset kayak class coming up this month, as well as programs for stand up paddleboarding. All of these programs are held at Carvins Cove, a beautiful spot surrounded by lush, green mountains.
Some of us relax by doing nothing, while others create! This month, make a seasonal, decorative sign for your home that can transition easily from fall to winter. Or, join us at the Fishburn Mansion for Painting in the Garden. You’ll enjoy the picturesque background of the beautiful garden while creating a one-of-a-kind floral painting for your home or office.
Cycling to food; cycling to parks; cycling for the sake of conversation—there are tons of reason to get out and ride, and we have a few that might be of interest to you. You can check out our robust parks system with one of our Parks by Bike tours! If you fancy yourself a foodie, sign up for our Tour d’ Roanoke food and bike tour. And if you want something with a little more buzz, try Cycling, Coffee, and Conversation. Participants ride along city streets, ending at Downshift for some coffee and some friendly conversation.
