Local firefighters and police officers will be honored at the 2023 I Love McLean Celebration on March 11. Sponsored by the McLean Citizens Association, the celebration will take place at the Community Hall at the McLean Community Center on Saturday, March 11 from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served at the free event, and arts and crafts activities will be available for children.

“Help us officially honor the people that protect us — our local firefighters and police officers,” the McLean Citizens Association invitation reads. “Our favorite superheroes will be recognized and presented plaques of appreciation around 2:30 p.m.”

MCA is joining with the McLean Project for the Arts to showcase McLean Pyramid Youth Art Show at the “I Love McLean Celebration.” The show will feature work by Fairfax County Public Schools McLean Pyramid students from elementary through high school.

Students from the Art in Motion Dance Studio will perform at the event. The McLean Community Players will also provide a sneak preview of their upcoming production of “The Thirty-Nine Steps,” a funny retelling of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 spy thriller.
