People are taking advantage of the good weather and stopping by to check it out- -how about you? 😊
Come by Bluemont Junction Trail for the “The Art of Snowflakes” exhibit now through Jan. 25. View three 8-foot snowflake murals installed along mile 8 of the trail for a very Insta-worthy photo op.

Inspired by art and life, the installations invite visitors to take a selfie and share your photos with us with the hashtag #artofsnowflakes and tag @arlparksrec or @arlcommunityarts. Park at the Bluemont Park lot (601 N Manchester St.) and follow the directional signage.
