    38.888676 -77.093117

  • Look for the FSC table top signs
  • Beads, Trinkets, Doubloons, and King Cake, Oh My !

    Please join the Krewe of the Fairlington Social Club (FSC) for the Annual Clarendon Mardi Gras Parade on Fat Tuesday March 4, 2014 at 7:00 PM at Whitlow's on Wilson Bar & Grill located at 2854 Wilson Boulevard Arlington, Virginia 22201.

    The parade starts at 8:00 PM but we will meet at Whitlow's at 7:00 PM for food & drink.

    If you can't join us for dinner beforehand, meet us at parade start (8:00 PM) at the corner of Wilson Boulevard and Fillmore Street in front of Whitlow's near the traffic barricades.

    The parade will pass right in front of this intersection.

    This is prime real estate for bead catching!

    This is your last chance to binge before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent.

    The Clarendon Courthouse Mardi Gras Parade, the largest celebration of Fat Tuesday in the Washington DC area, is a family-friendly event, and it’s big fun.

    Thousands of local residents and visitors will line the parade route along Wilson Boulevard from North Barton Street to Washington Boulevard.

    The Arlington County Police Department will close Wilson Boulevard in the Courthouse and Clarendon neighborhoods for the Mardi Gras Parade.

    The affected streets are listed below:

    • Wilson Boulevard, from N. Veitch Street to N. Barton Street, will be closed from 6:45 PM to 9:30 PM.

    • Wilson Boulevard, from N. Barton Street to N. Irving Street, will be closed from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM.

    • N. Adams Street and N. Wayne Street, between Clarendon Boulevard and Wilson Boulevard, will be closed from 6:45 PM to 8:00 PM.

    Parade attendees are encouraged to use Metro. The Courthouse and Clarendon stations on the Orange Line are located near the parade route.

    In addition, street parking in the area will be restricted. Motorists should be on the lookout for temporary “No Parking” signs. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed or towed.

    As there will be no parade today, this FSC event is cancelled.

    As soon as the Clarendon Alliance reschedules the Mardi Gras parade, I will repost it here as a FSC event.

    Happy Mardi Gras !

    FSCers,

    The Clarendon Alliance has announced that the 2014 Mardi Gras Parade is being postponed, due to snow and ice along the parade route.

    They intend to reschedule the parade, possibly around St. Patrick’s Day.

    Stay tuned for a confirmed reschedule date...
