Road Closures Saturday

Round Hill residents should be aware of moving road closures in and around Town due to the Hometown Festival 5k and Parade. Roads along both routes (pictured below) will be closed immediately in advance of each event and will be reopened as the last runner/final parade entrant passes through.

General timing of impacts will be approximately 7:45-8:45 a.m. for the 5k and 8:30-10:45 for the parade.

Residents and visitors are asked to refrain from parking cars on the side of the road along either route between early Saturday morning and the conclusion of the parade.

The 5k begins and ends at Round Hill Elementary School. The parade begins on Greenwood Drive, adjacent to Niels Poulsen Park, and then winds through Greenwood Commons, Hillwood Estates and the old part of Round Hill. 

Parade registration and line up begins at 8:15 a.m. At 9:30 a.m., the parade heads west on Greenwood Drive, across Main Street to Lee Drive, south on Jackson, east on Pickett, north on Longstreet, east on Hampton, south on Main, east on Loudoun to Town Park.

The 5k and parade both take place rain or shine.

Register for the parade online through www.roundhillparade.info.

The Festival, the Festival! How to Get to the Festival

While most people prefer to walk or bike to the Festival, for those who need to bring their cars, general parking will be available at the following locations:

  • Round Hill United Methodist Church (11 W. Loudoun Street)
  • Round Hill Town Office and NGSC (21 and 23 Main Street)
  • Round Hill Center (20 High Street)
  • Round Hill Elementary School (17115 Evening Star Drive)

Handicapped parking will be available at Round Hill Smile Design (2 W. Loudoun Street).

Entertainers in the Town Park are invited to park at C’est Bon (4 W. Loudoun Street) and Youth Stage Entertainers may park in the side lot of the Round Hill Baptist Church (9 W. Loudoun Street).

Please DO NOT park in private business lots except where noted above, or along the 5k or parade routes, or on North Locust Street (which would impede the Downhill Derby).

Rain, rain, go away

While we hope it won’t RAIN ON OUR PARADE on Saturday, we would be remiss not to mention the Festival’s rain plan, in case we do end up SINGING IN THE RAIN:

* 5K RACE is rain or shine
* PARADE is rain or shine
* DOWNHILL DERBY is cancelled if the road is wet enough to make steering/braking unsafe
* ENTERTAINMENT/FOOD/ETC
— Occasional showers — we will continue with our normal schedule as much as possible, shutting down only what/when we have to
— Complete washout — if by Thursday, May 26, it looks like there will be rain all day on Saturday, we will plan to relocate as much of the music, crafts and food as possible to the gym, cafeteria, hallway and parking lots of Round Hill Elementary School; alcohol sales will not be allowed

In the event of rain cancellations or schedule changes, updates will be posted on the Festival’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/rhhometownfestival
