Road Closures for Tonight’s Clarendon Mardi Gras Parade

In honor of Fat Tuesday, the Clarendon Alliance is holding its annual Mardi Gras parade tonight. (Although technically, it’s now a combined Mardi Gras/St. Patrick’s Day parade.)

The parade is scheduled to kick off at 8:00 p.m., but motorists may want to make note of some road closures that will take effect before the parade.

Wilson Boulevard will be closed from Veitch Street to Barton Street starting at 6:45 p.m. to allow parade floats to line up. Adams Street and Wayne Street will both be closed between Clarendon Boulevard and Wilson Boulevard at 6:45 p.m., for the same reason.

At 7:30 p.m., Wilson will be blocked off along the parade route from Barton Street to Irving Street.

Adams and Wayne Streets will reopen at 8:00 p.m., while Wilson will reopen after the parade concludes, around 9:30 p.m.

In addition to the road closures, there will also be parking restrictions in the area, marked by temporary ‘no parking’ signs. County officials are encouraging parade-goers to take the Metro to Courthouse or Clarendon instead of driving.
