If you were bummed about the cancelation of the Reston Fall Festival last October, here's some payback. The seasons have changed -- along with the event's new name: the Reston Spring Festival set along Lake Anne (11402 Washington Plaza West, Reston, Va.)

A local band lineup includes 10+ bands, including Diamond Dolls, SugarRush and Circlebox. A farmers market will run from 8 a.m. to noon, and beer and wine tastings featuring local craft breweries will be offered at $3 each or four for $20. The first 500 people will score a souvenir tasting glass.
Grownups can try their hands in the cornhole tourney, featuring a $500 grand prize, and kids can join in on a scavenger hunt.
The free festival is Saturday, May 12 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event benefits the 4Paws Rescue Team, a nonprofit selected by the Reston community.
