Take Me Fishing at Seneca Creek State Park: Grab your fishing gear and set your alarm because Seneca Creek State Park is hosting the Take Me Fishing course from 8:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. Join an expert angler for a beginner’s course in fishing and if you don’t have any equipment, it’s okay since rods, reels, and bait will be supplied by the park. The whole family can get in on the fishing fun. Non-tidal licenses are required for ages 16+.

Walk This Way Art Experience: Reconnect with your inner child as you explore artist Inga Adda’s newest exhibit along Kingsley Trail. The Walk This Way installation is composed of several new signs meant to inspire hikers to stop and be one with nature as it ignites your imagination and encourages you to think outside the box. The Kingsley Trail is just under one mile, ends at the lawn of the historic Kingsley Schoolhouse, and should be an easy, relaxing walk to help you take a break from your week.

Takoma Park Farmers Market: If you’re looking for fresh and local food and produce, look no further than the weekly Takoma Park Farmers Market. Operating from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the market is host to the freshest seasonal produce, breads, pasture-raised meats, artisan cheeses, eggs, baked goods, and more from farms within 125 miles of Takoma Park. Located behind the shops on Laurel Avenue, you are sure to see some delicious food and meet some nice members of the community.
