St. Patrick’s Day Lineup–and a Weather Alert!

snow_chances_3-15-2We’d rather “organize” fun parades than be amateur meteorologists, but this one is just too close to call right now.  As of Sunday afternoon, the Capital Weather Gang says 1-3″ of snow inside the Beltway, with a high of 32 degrees.  The National Weather Service is expecting more snow, and if we get it, the March 17 parade will be cancelled.

The Clarendon Alliance is in contact with Arlington Police, and together, we will make a judgement call about whether the parade can proceed on Monday, March 17, after we evaluate the snow accumulations and the road conditions.  We’d really like this parade to move forward, because we know our entrants have spent time, energy, and money to prepare for it.  We’ll be updating the website tomorrow with more information, so stay tuned.

Here is the revised parade order for St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2014:
