ARLnow Holiday Weekend Discussion

This weekend officially marks the end of summer, with Labor Day on Monday.

Be warned if you’re staying in the area: there are plenty of closures this weekend for the federal holiday.

Libraries, courts, the DMV and recreation centers are among the county facilities closed, although spraygrounds will be open and trash pickup will operate as normal on Labor Day.

Before we all go and enjoy our holidays, these were our five most-read articles this week:

  1. Amid Parking Tensions, a Racially-Charged Vandalism
  2. Crime Report: Man’s Face Slashed in Ballston
  3. County Launches Food Scraps Drop-Off Program
  4. Ballston BID Faces Up to ‘First Real Challenge’ of NSF Departure
  5. Man Spurned By Disinterested Women Arrested for Throwing a Brick At Their Car

And these received the most comments:

  1. Amid Parking Tensions, a Racially-Charged Vandalism
  2. Morning Notes (August 30)
  3. Morning Notes (August 29)
  4. Morning Notes (August 28)
  5. County Launches Food Scraps Drop-Off Program

ARLnow will also take Monday off for the Labor Day holiday, barring any breaking news. We’ll be back on Tuesday.

Between now and then, feel free to discuss anything of local interest in the comments below. Have a great holiday weekend!
