St. Patrick's Day Parade in Clarendon...TONIGHT

Straight from the website:

Tuesday, March 16, 2010
From Courthouse to Clarendon, along Wilson Boulevard

When: 8:00 p.m.
Where: Parade runs from Courthouse to Clarendon, along Wilson Boulevard, starting near Barton Street and ending between Highland Street and Clarendon Circle
Who: All ages
Fee: Free

What: As we all know, this year's Clarendon Mardi Gras was cancelled due to the "Blizzard of 2010." Undaunted, the Clarendon Alliance has decided to hold a St. Patrick's Day Parade in its place. Mark your calendar for March 16 and join Clarendon's St. Patrick's Day Eve celebration by watching green floats and leprechauns parade along Wilson Boulevard, one half of the Clarendon streetscape proclaimed one of the 10 Great Streets of America by the American Planning Association! The parade is organized by the Clarendon Alliance.

Look for the WALKArlington/BikeArlington Parade contingent. WALKArlington walkers will be pushing festively decorated pedestrian shopping carts, overflowing with lucky charms, candy, and WALKArlington give-aways to be tossed to paradegoers. Don't miss the roll-out of these pedestrian shopping carts, the latest in "green" walking accessories!
