The first (annual?) Clarendon St. Patrick’s Day parade kicks off tonight at 8:00 p.m. at the intersection of Wilson Blvd and N. Barton St.

Homegrown floats will roll down the parade route towards the Clarendon Metro station, accompanied by people in costume. Expect plenty of green beads to be thrown to the crowd lining Wilson Blvd.

No word yet on whether organizers will also be distributing purple and yellow beads. The St. Patrick’s Day parade was created as a substitute for the annual Mardi Gras parade, which was canceled this year due to snow.

  • I have it on good authority – the event organizer – that there WILL be beads.
