Supervisors Honored for Commitment to Summer Concerts

Five members of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors who are not returning to their current positions after the fall recently were honored by the Fairfax County Park Authority and the Fairfax County Park Foundation for their contributions to the popular Summer Entertainment Series.

For more than 25 years, the Fairfax County Park Authority in partnership with the Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County Park Foundation has offered free summer entertainment for residents of all ages and backgrounds. The Summer Entertainment Series carries on the American tradition of summer concerts by offering musical performances, children's shows, international cultural performances, and drive-in movies through 11 local series featuring 170 free performances at 16 venues with more than 40,000 people in attendance.
