What kind of community events are we talking about? Well, Vienna is known for its annual Halloween Parade, an event that many neighboring communities show up for. They also host block parties, a Fourth of July parade, summertimes concerts in the town park, Movies on the Green and a whole host of other fun events throughout the year.
