The Rosslyn Business Improvement District has already announced its office-themed outdoor summer movie schedule, which will run on Friday nights from May 30 to Aug. 22. In addition to the films, events for dogs and their owners, fashion and fitness fans and a farmers market are on their way.

Starting next Friday, May 2, Rosslyn will host a “Yappy Hour” at Le Méridien Arlington, 1121 19th St. N. on the terrace in front of Amuse. Dogs are welcome — and the pooches will have some treats — and cocktails and appetizers are available to their owners, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Starting May 16 will be Fashion Truck Fridays, when a slew of fashion trucks — the boutique equivalent of a food truck — will make their way to N. Lynn Street from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every week until Sept. 26.

Lava Barre, which will be opening in Rosslyn soon, is offering free outdoor classes every Wednesday at Gateway Park from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Participants need to register are only required to bring a bottle of water and a mat for the exercises, which incorporate techniques from yoga, ballet and pilates.

Every Thursday afternoon, along N. Oak Street, the Rosslyn farmers market and outdoor concert will return. The market features a handful of booths with vendors selling baked goods, produce and artisanal crafts. In the courtyard in front of Kanpai Sushi and Allspice Catering and Cafe, a new performer will stage a show every week.
