A little ‘Antiques Roadshow’ in Kensington

A litle Antiques Roadshow

This week we were able to shine the spotlight on the Town of Kensington. Fox 5 broadcast its morning show from Howard Avenue and featured town residents, activities and businesses as part of its summer Zip Trip series that highlights interesting places to visit in the DMV.

Kensington is perhaps best known for Antique Row, so we thought why not do our own take on the popular PBS series Antiques Roadshow to engage the community and showoff Kensington as a fantastic resource. What fun! Folks lined the street waiting for a chance to get their treasures appraised—and appear on TV. Town businesses and community leaders also had a moment to shine.

You can catch some of the Fox 5 show segments online, along with the 5 Must Stops for your Zip Trip Kensington, including the M&W established Kensington Farmers Market, KTown Food Truck Night and the Summer Concert Series. While you’re at it, go ahead and visit the website we created as part of the Explore Kensington campaign.
