April 02, 2018 1:48 PM | Pat Miller (Administrator)

    First Thursday returns to Del Ray on Thursday, April 5, with the theme "Hats Along the Avenue." The monthly street festival takes place from 6pm to dusk along Mount Vernon Avenue, and is free and open to all.

     In April, pull out your favorite hat, Easter Bonnet, or Crazy Hat Day-inspired creation and stroll Mount Vernon Avenue and enjoy live music from the Billy and Bob Classic Country Trio, plus themed activities. Pets are welcome. Pets with hats are welcome, too!

     Participants are encouraged to bring donations for the Alexandria Battered Women's Shelter, to help give women escaping domestic violence a safe, fresh start. Needed items include pots, pans, dishes, glasses/cups, toasters, can openers, coffee makers, diapers (sizes 4-6), batteries (D & AA), and gift cards. Donations will be collected at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, located at the intersection of Mount Vernon and Oxford Avenues.

    Held the first Thursday from April to September along Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, First Thursday is a series of free outdoor street festivals that bring the community together around a fun theme, benefiting a local nonprofit.
