On June 9th, the Annual Mantua Parade and Picnic will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The Mantua Citizens' Association is once again pleased to sponsor this welcome to summer with the Mantua Swim and Tennis Club. This is one of the most enjoyable community events of the year and we hope everyone in Mantua will join us for a day full of fun, food, and activities.
Our parade will begin at 11:00 a.m. and will proceed from the down Prince William Drive from the corner with Horner Court, turn left on to Glenbrook, and proceed up Glenbrook to Pentland Place.
REMINDER: Prince William Drive will be "Closed to Traffic" between Glenbrook and Horner Court from approximately 10:45 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
The parade will end at the parking lot of the Mantua Swim and Tennis Club. Once again this year, the parade will include vehicles from the Fire Department, and many of our local elected representatives. Mantua's own Rocky will make an appearance. All children and their parents are welcome to march or ride their bikes in the parade! Special prizes will be awarded for the best decorated bikes and strollers.
The parade staging area is the corner of Prince William Drives and Horner Court.
If you wish to ride or walk in the parade, please park in the Mantua Elementary parking lot and assemble at Horner Court by 10:45 a.m.
The picnic will be at the Swim and Tennis Club and will begin immediately after the parade! There will be plenty of food, fun, music, swimming and games for everyone. Fairfax County emergency vehicles will be on display in the parking lot for all to see and there will be a moon bounce for the children courtesy of Bernie Amusements.
