Visit Alexandria Launches Video Series Today with Town Crier

As the coronavirus pandemic brings tourism to a standstill, Visit Alexandria has scheduled a series of virtual sessions with local businesses and attractions called ALX at Home LIVE.

The video series is scheduled to start today (Tuesday) at 2 p.m. with an interview with town crier Ben Fiore-Walker, featuring an original town cry.

“Tune in to Visit Alexandria’s Facebook page for virtual sessions with local businesses and attractions ranging from how-to videos to guided deskside exercises,” the organization said in a press release.

The video series is part of a broader effort called ALX at Home, which aims to become a hub for keeping Alexandrians connected to information about local restaurants and independent boutiques.

“Included on the hub are more than 100 ways to support Alexandria businesses as well as virtual experiences ranging from ghost tours to a black history scavenger hunt,” Visit Alexandria said. 

According to the press release, the full schedule is:

  • March 31: Meet Alexandria’s Town Crier
  • April 7: AR Workshop’s Craft Tutorial
  • April 14: Carlyle House’s Virtual Tour
  • April 21: Old Town Books’ Virtual Storytime
  • April 28: Mind the Mat’s Wellness Exercises
