ARLnow Holiday Weekend Discussion

A three day weekend is here, meaning extra rest and relaxation for many, and no need to feed the parking meter on Monday.

Some snow and freezing precipitation may make for hazardous travel on Saturday — even though Arlington is outside the current Winter Weather Advisory — so be careful if you’re on the roads. The main event in Arlington on Sunday, other than the NFL playoffs on TV, will be the scheduled Martin Luther King Jr. tribute at Wakefield High School.

ARLnow staff will either be off or working on other projects on Monday, so nothing will be published except in the event of breaking news.

For the die-hards reading this, you might wonder whatever happened to our top vote-getting rejected t-shirt design. Well, the “King of the North (Arlington)” shirt is here and you can order it today.

Get it as either a short sleeve or long sleeve t-shirt.
