If you're in the Washington D.C. area this month, head out to Alexandria, Virginia, to take advantage of the many visual and performing arts events going on as part of the historic town's second annual fall festival, appropriately titled Kaleidoscope. Running now through October 31, the fest is jam-packed with theater, concerts, and all manner of art shows demonstrating the range of local talent. Some events are free while some require purchased tickets, and the entire schedule can be found on the Kaleidoscope web site.
Some of the remaining events include "Standing Room Only," a dance performance by the Choreographers Collaboration Project, "Cantorial," a mystery-drama by Ira Levin (author of "Rosemary's Baby" and other works), and the "Sweet n' Salty" art exhibit by the Del Ray Artisans.
Information about tickets and timing can be found on the Kaleidoscope web site - if you're in the area, be sure to check out one of these artistic adventures!
