Looking for the perfect time to start your Car-Free Diet? World Car-Free Day might just be the day!
One day every year, people from all over the globe gather together in the streets, intersections, and neighborhood blocks to remind the world that we don't have to accept living in a car-dominated society. As the climate heats up, this kind of event is the perfect way to take the heat off the planet, and put it on city planners and politicians to give priority to cycling, walking and public transport instead of to the automobile.
We invite you to come out for a fun, family-friendly WALKArlington Walkabout through the streets of Clarendon starting at 6:30 pm. It���s a great opportunity to see and learn about the historical sights, stores and natural beauty of this urban village up close and on foot! For more event info and a map of the Clarendon WalkAbout, check out www.walkarlington.com (SEE MESSAGE BOARD FOR LINKS)
