ARLnow Weekend Discussion

After a seemingly endless summer, a more temperate weekend is upon us and fall-like weather is here to stay.

As a special treat this weekend, we present to you a video from the “Roadeo” competition for Arlington public works crews, held Thursday at Long Bridge Park, courtesy of our staff photographer Jay Westcott.

You can also view Fox 5’s coverage of the Roadeo here.
