Clarendon Celebrates Clarendon

Clarendon Celebrates Clarendon

— Clarendon Day 2012 has a bit of everything for everyone. Runners of all ages can participate in the Pacer’s 10k/5k/Kids Dash. There will be local entertainment on two stages. More than a dozen local restaurants will offer a wide range of delicious treats, and beer, wine, and other beverages.

There is plenty for kids at Clarendon Day–the KidZone area has new rides and new activities—and old favorites—in the Kinderhaus Tent and on the Clarendon Stage sponsored by the Virginia Hospital Center.

There will also be dozens of arts and crafts exhibitors, as well as local businesses and nonprofits who support the community and want to meet their neighbors.

Clarendon Day is a celebration of the neighborhood, and a showcase for all the people who make it great. Join the festivities at the Clarendon Metro station, from 11 to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22. Visit
