Saturday is Free Comic Book Day. Participating stores include Laughing Ogre Comics (Lansdowne and Fairfax), Game On Comics (Vienna), EG Comics (Vienna), Big Planet Comics (Vienna), Hole in the Wall Books (Falls Church), Victory Comics (Falls Church).

Saturday is the Pet Fiesta at Reston Town Center.

It's Laser Tag Space Championship Weekend at Great Country Farms in Bluemont.

This weekend is also Scouting for Bricks at Heritage High School in Leesburg.

The season opening of the Brambleton Farmers Market is this Sunday from 9-1. Balloons for kids, recipes, and a special appearance by Slapshot (Caps mascot).

Not Loudoun or Fairfax, but... Saturday is the Manassas Airshow. We've been in previous years and our kids loved it.

Not NOVA, but it's the "Around the World Embassy Tours" on Saturday in DC. I haven't been, but I've heard it's fantastic.

My husband goes every year and loves it! The first weekend (May 4) it is primarily the Asian embassies. The following weekend (May 11) it is the European embassies. My husband enjoys it so much, that we are heading up that weekend (yay!) so he can go to it.

michgc,
We have done this a few times, too, and enjoyed it very much. It is interesting experience - vaious entertainment with dancing, music, exhibits, and some food :-) Plus many embassies are located in beautiful historical areas/ buidlings.

Don't forget the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester (okay, not technically NOVA). And the Reston Town Center pet fiesta is a lot of fun.
