Parking on Guinea Road

The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) recently evaluated the south side of Guinea Road from the shopping center entrance to Sandy Lewis Drive to determine if any parking restrictions were warranted based on current program practices. As a result of this review, No Parking signs were installed east and west of the marked crosswalk across Guinea Road at Zion Drive to assist in maintaining an open sight line for drivers and pedestrians, in addition to preventing drivers from parking within the flow line of a roadway drainage area. This No Parking Zone extends from approximately 100 feet west of the Zion Drive intersection eastward to the bowling alley entrance. A No Parking Zone is also being implemented on the east side of Sandy Lewis Drive for approximately 125 feet for crosswalk visibility as well.

Taste of Annandale - April 29 from 10am-4pm

The community is invited to the Taste of Annandale, a free family-friendly festival April 29, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., along Tom Davis Drive.  The Taste of Annandale features live performances, food trucks and restaurants, children’s programming and activities, a 5K race, a best-dressed pet contest, vendors, a chili cookoff, beer garden, and the police helicopter.

The Taste of Annandale is organized by the Annandale-Mason Roundtable, a nonprofit formed by volunteers. The festival was developed with two major goals in mind: to bring the community together to celebrate Annandale and to shine a spotlight on local businesses and restaurants. Since the first Taste of Annandale in 2015, it has grown every year to become the biggest street festival in the area. The festival’s partners include the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services, Mason Police District, Celebrate Fairfax, and the ACCA Child Development Center.

The Title Sponsor of the Taste of Annandale is Lambros Goldsmith. Sponsorships are available, as well as space for vendors and restaurants. The deadline has been extended to April 20. Learn more and download an application on the Taste of Annandale website,
