The First Friday series started in February 2014 and has been a big hit since! While residing at Arcadia Run, you’re so close to all the fun that First Friday has to offer. Take advantage of Historic Downtown Manassas and kick off your 4th of July weekend at First Friday!
While living at the new apartment home community of Arcadia Run, you’re so close to historic downtown Manassas and all of the events that go on there. Take advantage of this and celebrate America this 4th of July in downtown Manassas! There are many different activities for all different age groups so you are sure to have a great time.
Manassas is hosting an all-American party starting at 3pm. In the streets surrounding the train depot, the Harris Pavilion and the Manassas Museum, there will be rides for kids, food concessions and even a watermelon eating contests. You can also enter an apple pie and peach pie contest. Children are encouraged to enter the bicycle-decorating contest where they will be judged in three different categories that include most creative, most patriotic and best bike overall. The judges will score and deliberate while participants complete two laps around the Harris Pavilion. Not only are these contests fun, you can also win prizes for coming in third, second or first place!
Arguably the best part of this celebration is, of course, the fireworks. Good thing Manassas has one of the largest fireworks displays in Northern Virginia! They start at 9:15pm on the Manassas Museum Lawn, but make sure you come early with your blankets, snacks and lawn chairs to get the best seats!

At Arcadia Run, there are many opportunities for fun in the Manassas area, especially if you are a history buff! Conveniently, the Manassas National Battlefield Park is located just outside of Arcadia Run’s new apartment home community. This is a great way to spend the day with your family – not only is it fun but also educating as well!
Who says that because the kids are out of school for the summer they can’t use a little bit of knowledge? Manassas National Battlefield Park conserves the site of two major American Civil War battles. The First Battle of Bull Run was fought on July 21st, 1861. The Second Battle of Bull Run wasn’t until August 28th, 1862 and lasted two days. The Virginia scenery, which was usually very peaceful, witnessed the disputed encounter between the armies of the Union and the Confederacy, or the North and the South.
Today, visitors are able to explore the historic countryside where men fought over a century ago. The Henry Hill Visitor Center by the south entrance to the park offers a look at an electronic battle map, field gear, weapons and civil war era uniforms. Many other Historic Sites of the battlefield include The Stone House that was used as a hospital during both battles, the Stone Bride which the union retreated across after both battles, and the Robinson house (now in ruins) that was the home of the freed slave, James Robinson. Over 900,000 people visit this historic park each year and now you can be one of them while residing at Arcadia Run!
