Thanks for a Great Clarendon-Courthouse Mardi Gras Parade!


A hearty “THANK YOU” from the Clarendon Alliance to all our parade participants for making the 15th Clarendon-Courthouse Mardi Gras parade the best one yet!   We had (if we did the arithmetic right) about a 70% increase in participation over last year.

We also want to thank Arlington’s Finest and Arlington’s Bravest for their help this year.  We know we can make next year’s Parade better yet, and we have already made notes about what we need to do to improve our parade in 2013.

Here’s the roster of the parade participants–Give them some love when you see them!
