Replacing the whited out Clarendon Mardi Gras parade is the first-ever Clarendon eve of St. Patrick Day's parade. The parade will start about 8pm on Tuesday, March 16, near the corner of Wilson Blvd and N. Veitch St. close by the Courthouse metro. The parade will travel up Wilson Blvd. to Clarendon.
In other St. Patrick news, St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church in Clarendon will hold a Gaelic mass in honor of St. Patrick on Monday, March 15 at 7:30pm. The Arlington Chapter of the Ancient Order of Hibernians is co-sponsoring the event. A short reception after the mass will feature Irish step dancing, Irish song, Irish baked goods, and tea and coffee.
Do something more interesting for St. Patrick's Day than getting drunk!
