ARLnow Holiday Weekend Discussion

The Labor Day holiday weekend is here and Arlington residents are looking forward to vacations and the extra day off — as well as the start of September on Sunday.

In a poll this week, ARLnow readers said the top three things they were most looking forward to in the month of September were more pleasant weather, the start of football season and pumpkin spice food and drink. This weekend in Arlington you should be able to enjoy all three.

The start of school was No. 5 on our list, but it’s still something that all Arlingtonians should be aware of as you head out on the roads on Tuesday.

Another thing to look forward is two new members of the ARLnow team who are both starting on Tuesday. Jay Westcott will be our first staff photographer/videographer and former ARLnow intern Kalina Newman will re-join us as a reporter following a fellowship at Washingtonian. Welcome, Jay and Kalina!
