Fox 5 DC’s Zip Trip Team Broadcasts LIVE from Del Ray
On Friday, June 3, FOX 5 DC’s “Good Day DC” hosts Kevin McCarthy, Maureen Umeh and Meteorologist Tucker Barnes were broadcasting LIVE in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.
At 7:00 AM Kevin and Maureen greeted the audience with the Alexandria Day School Band as Tucker Barnes reported from the Historic Del Ray Sign (outside Cheesetique).
At 8:00 AM, the hosts participated in an outdoor exercise class. At 8:30, Alexandria Mayor Allison Silberberg joined the group before the Irish Breakfast Band took the stage to perform for the audience. While they played, Happy Tart Gluten-Free Bakery taught Kevin and Maureen how to decorate cakes.
Tucker and Kevin then went to Velocity Bikes to interview its co-owner at 9:50, while Tucker and Maureen introduced Hometown Hero, Community Activist Pat Miller and local folk band Allison and Kevin Pace took to the stage. Then, outside of the Pork Barrel Restaurant, Kevin learned how to make a huge bubble, as part of “DIY Del Ray.”
There were also segments with Del Ray’s Mind the Mat and the show paid tribute to the Alexandria Fire Department which was represented by local station 203.
Lastly, the anchors received a “Taste of Del Ray” sampling from Stomping Ground Restaurant, Pork Barrel BBQ, and the soon-to-open Junction Bakery & Bistro.
