Old habits die hard, and it's even harder to break with tradition. But when a tradition
is beloved by all involved, there's no need to make a change. The same can be
said for simply sticking with a good thing--like a trusted business or organization.
This month we share the stories of one of each, both of which have withstood the
test of time.
Now that summer is seemingly here for good (or at least
for a good while), we can dive into summer activities,
including a longtime favorite, miniature golf. We're lucky
to have a beautiful course right in our midst--the
Magic
Putting Place, which has been open on Mathis Avenue in
Manassas since 1986 . Head over to explore all 36 holes
of miniature golf. Both the Windmill and Magic Castle
courses are meticulously landscaped with active fountain
ponds. Enjoy light snacks at the 19th Hole Snack Bar or end a fun round of mini
golf with a delicious ice cream treat right next door at Nathan's Dairy Bar.
One of their many fans sums it up perfectly: "Cute little gem of a miniature golf
course near downtown Manassas. Very well-maintained, especially considering
the prices are incredibly low! The courses are fun, with just enough of a challenge
to make them enjoyable, without becoming too diffi cult." To learn more, call
(703) 257-PUTT (7888).
Now in its 34th year,
Historic Manassas Inc. (HMI)
remains committed to engaging the community to promote,
preserve, and enhance its vibrant Historic Downtown
area. HMI executive director Debbie Haight points out
that there's always something fun going on in Manassas.
For example, it offers a broad range of musical events,
including the Jazz Festival (see details on page 18) and
Beatlemania Again, both on June 15, weekly Acoustic
Tuesdays (Hayley Fahey on June 18 and Shane Gamble on June 25), and the
Nighthawk Swing Band & Ice Cream Social on June 23.
Other fun events include Brews and Brains, offering an exploration of D-Day
(the 75th anniversary was this month) on June 20 at the Tucked About Brewing
Company; The Art of Games, an evening of Visual Art vs. Drama gaming at the
Center for the arts on June 22; and Autorama Fest, a community festival that
includes a car show and family-friendly activities on June 29. To learn more, visit
