Flavors Were Savored at Reston Town Center

Autumn brews and delicious eats were front and center when Flavors of Fall returned to the Reston Town Center on Saturday, October 6th. 

Presented by the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce, an estimated 40,000 attendees turned out for this annual event, one of Northern Virginia’s largest outdoor festivals.

With offerings that included 16 regional craft beers and hard ciders, this was the place for seasonal sipping and samplings of some of the best bites from 13 favorite local restaurants.   A variety of entertainments and family activities, along with live music on the Pavilion Stage and “The Cornhole Experience!” charity tournament, guaranteed fun for everyone.

And to round out the weekend, 300 runners made sure that the Reston Pumpkin 5K on Sunday, October 7th was a success, with Jessica Ingham, of Herndon, winning the Women’s Division with a finish time of 21.49 and Caleb Hess of Reston placing first in the Men’s Division, with a time of 18:18.

Mark Ingrao, President and CEO of the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce commented, “We’re proud that the Chamber can be part of such a great event and view it as a way to give back to the community and highlight the businesses in and around Reston.”

Partial proceeds from Flavors of Fall and Reston Pumpkin 5K & Kids’ Pumpkin Dash will help fund the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce 501(c)(3) education foundation that provides mentorship and education for emerging and start-up companies from all over the region.
