We will meet at 8:15 AM outside the Memorial Amphitheater on the side opposite the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We'll move inside the Amphitheater at 8:30 AM. Opening remarks begin at 8:45 AM.

Snow is forecast for Friday. The website indicates there is not rain/snow alternative date.

The site recommends bringing poles (such as broom handles) to help pick up the wreaths.

    I'm going to most likely drive from Silver Spring. I have room for one person. Any idea about the parking situation?

      Hi Lisa, the website has been updated with the details for this year's event. It says the ANC parking lot will be open at 7 AM and will have free parking until 1 PM. If that lot is full, then the Pentagon parking lot is an alternative for those with DoD Vehicle Tags. The Crystal City parking garages are free on weekends. Crystal City is 3 metro stops south of ANC.
