Summer fun in the sun is all about active recreation and reconnecting. There are ample opportunities to get the kids out from in front of the screen (and let’s face it, us too) and engaged in community activities. From July Fourth celebrations to Hunt Country polo matches, we have what your looking for in our July Events round-up.
Polo in the Park | Saturdays in July
Morven Park | Leesburg
Each night of the season features two arena polo matches that showcase the skills of polo players from around the world, including internationally renowned players Juan Salinas-Bentley and Doug Barnes of Destination Polo. The sport is thrilling to watch for long-time fans and new spectators alike, with nonstop action in the arena. Families can look forward to the intermission between the matches, when kids of all ages are invited into the polo arena for exciting games, including tug-of-war.
