Leesburg’s Downtown Outdoor Dining Resumes Friday

The Town of Leesburg will ramp up its popular sidewalk dining program on Friday, March 5.

Last July, the town launched the temporary program to help downtown restaurants that were impacted by the indoor dining restrictions set forth by the Gov. Ralph Northam’s Executive Order responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Town Council recently set aside funding to extend the program through the rest of the calendar year. King Street, between Market and Loudoun streets, will close on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, to create an outdoor dining area for participating restaurants.

Sidewalk dining hours will be Friday and Saturday from 4 -10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The street closure will begin 30 minutes prior. Designated on-street parking spaces will be available for delivery and pickup on East and West Market Street, adjacent to the King Street intersection.

Customers will not be allowed to congregate in the street and must maintain social distancing at all times. There will be no live performances or other outdoor entertainment; however, customers are encouraged to visit downtown shops while waiting to dine.

    The LoCo local leaders are a total train wreck and a national embarrassment. First, a failed vaccination effort. One fiasco after another with a year to prepare! Illegals, prisoners and politicians vaccinated before the elderly. What is wrong with these people? Next, vaccinated teachers refuse to teach so the schools are still closed. (How about cutting off paychecks to see that that changes behavior?) Yesterdays trampling of 2A rights is a symbol of the rot from within. (Hint – criminals don’t care about gun laws. Gun free zones are target rich environments) Finally, cancelling Dr. Seuss! National news portraying LoCo as a bunch of woke hypocrites. great work!

    So they throw the peasants a bone by allowing us to dine outside in the winter.

    We need a wholesale change in the leadership of this County and this Commonwealth.
