"Hauntingly Familiar"
NoVAGO's Fall Picnic and Auction
Saturday, October 28, 2017

11 am - 3 pm

Burke Lake, Fairfax County, VA

Burke Lake Park charges a $10 entrance fee per car for non-county residents on weekends. There is no charge for Fairfax County residents. NoVAGO encourages attendees not wanting to pay an entrance fee to carpool or find alternitive parking to walk to the pavilion. For other vehicle fees please visit this LINK.

Summer has passed and fall is on the way. Come and help us celebrate the turning of the seasons by attending NoVAGO's last major event of 2017. This year’s event will again be held with a Halloween theme. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume to celebrate the season. We'll have our traditional cook-out picnic lunch followed by some spectacular caching opportunities never before seen in NoVAGO!!

Be sure to log your “will-attend” as early as possible to ensure that we have enough food for the masses. Attendees are encouraged to bring your favorite pot luck dish, all we ask is that you list what you are bringing in your “will attend” log so that others won’t bring in a similar dish. As with all of our picnics NoVAGO will be supplying the charcoal, hamburgers, hot dogs, plates, and condiments.

For much more details about this event please visit our NoVAGO page.

In keeping with the NoVAGO tradition, our Fall Picnic is also the time for the yearly. . .

The silent auction will be going on throughout the event, so come and bid on the many cool items that will be up for auction! Our annual auction is NoVAGO's main source of income. If you have any donations of items, please let NoVAGO know. We hope to see you all there, and look forward to finishing the year on a high note!
