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.
