As a resident of Lake Manassas, I have to share that Halloween is and always has been a favorite tradition!  Residing in a gated community may be an advantage for the children of the community to roam free and with parental supervision.  I always marvel at the creative costumes and changes in the kids that come to my door trick or treating.  I watched my kids and their friends grow up and now I get to enjoy the same with my neighbors’ children.

Last year I ran a Halloween, Lake Manassas experiment.  I had a selection of chocolate candy available, to include non-peanut options and a selection of snacks, such as potato chips, pretzels, and Fritos.  It was amazing to see what options the kids would choose.  The younger kids, 8 year olds and under, went

The main level starts with exterior living space in the way of a front porch.  Hardiplank exterior with stone or brick water tables accentuate this lovely and appealing front entry.  The central foyer is bracketed by a formal dining room
