From stage shows to picnics in the park to family-friendly festivals, the best ways to celebrate springtime in the county have arrived with extended daylight hours. Spring ushers in a plethora of opportunities for Fluvanna residents to be outdoors embracing the warm weather and each other. Here’s a sampling of what’s happening over the next several weeks.

Spring break at the library
The Fluvanna County Library gives kids of all ages something to enjoy from Monday, April 3 to Friday, April 7, and you can play mini golf all week long. Here’s what else is happening:
Thursday, April 6: All day family board game day;
Thursday, April 6: 10 a.m. Family-friendly movie – Storks (rated PG) with free popcorn;
Friday, April 7: 10 a.m. Storytime; and
Friday, April 7: 2 and 7 p.m. Family-friendly movie – Moana (rated PG) with free popcorn.

Free state park passes
On an ongoing basis, nature-loving nomads can stop by the library to check out nature backpacks with free state parks passes made possible by the “I Love Virginia State Parks” program. Each backpack contains one state park pass good for one vehicle with up to eight people inside. The pass may be used at any state park. The backpack also contains identification guides for bugs, birds and trees, and a magnifying glass. Backpacks may be checked out for two weeks.

Fitness in the great outdoors – what could be better?

Fluvanna has a new fitness trail at the Eastern Trailhead along the Sandy Beach Trail off Route 53.

“I’m absolutely delighted it’s finished,” said Virginia Foster, secretary of the Heritage Trail Foundation. The Fluvanna nonprofit is responsible for the many trails along the Rivanna River, Pleasant Grove and the Eastern Trailhead.

The Foundation provided $10,000 from its membership dues to purchase the equipment for the trail, said Marvin Moss, Foundation president.
After studying several fitness or par course trails in Richmond and Northern Virginia, Foster said the group settled on a 10-station course that “looked rustic enough to fit our location.”
