Westwood Wednesday tonight at Westwood Shopping Center in Bethesda
First, kids will be able to paint terra cotta pots and plant their own vegetables, thanks to guest Mighty Mole Gardens. “My goal is to get families—and especially young children—into growing veggies at home,” says owner Erin Joshi.
A second guest will be an organization very local to the Westbard area. Brit-Am Soccer Academy staff will be on hand from 6:00-7:00 PM tonight to test the skills of both younger and older kids. They teach everyone from the age of 18 months old to high school seniors. The Butler Road-based academy was founded in 1999 by former English professional soccer player Steve Knapman, who played against stars like David Beckham in his early years.
Music tonight will be performed by Ken Fischer, specializing in acoustic rock and blues. Games will include cornhole, ladder ball and ring toss.
Everything is free at the event, except for the food, which tonight will be served up by the Say Cheese! food truck. Create your own gourmet grilled cheese sandwich, and try their salads, wings, and ice cream. There are picnic tables available for dining.
Westwood Wednesdays run from 5:00 to 8:00 PM in the parking lot near Rite Aid.
