Ever seen a boot on wheels? Now’s your chance!

L.L.Bean kicked off their 100th Anniversary earlier this year and to celebrate, they’re taking their larger-than-life Bootmobile on tour.

This 13-foot tall, 20.5-foot long, and 7.5-foot wide Bootmobile will be in town this weekend with events at Occoquan Regional Park and the L.L.Bean retail locations in McLean and Columbia, Md.

This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy some fun outdoor activities, and raise $1 million for the National Park Foundation this year.
