Foz 5 Zip Trip Spotlights The Town of La Plata

August 5, 2016

On Aug. 5 between 6-11 a.m., television anchors Wisdom Martin, Annie Yu and Tucker Barnes broadcast the FOX 5 Zip Trip from La Plata Town Hall. Zip Trip is a weekly Friday series that highlights spots to visit around the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.


Tucker Barnes stopped by House Boutique, Charles Street Bakery and Bernie’s Frame Shop before visiting Island Music for a ukulele lesson.

They also sampled food from Marie’s Diner, Pizza Hotline and Galazio’s.

Julie Dotson from Centerpiece Boutique did a Annie Sloan chalk paint demonstration.

Many area residents and businesses gathered to show our Charles County Pride.

“This is a great community to visit and we are not just a street that you drive down to get to work,” said Keith Grasso, president of the La Plata Business Association. “We have a lot of awesome things and it’s exciting when there are people out and in the streets. For the La Plata Business Association, this also helps us kick off our Rocktoberfest and Shop La Plata celebration coming this fall where we have the streets packed with people as well.”
