The rain held off for the most part and quite a lot of people were out to celebrate along the Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia.
First Thursdays is a series of free outdoor street festivals along Mount Vernon Avenue in the spring and summer. Every first Thursday of the months of May, June, July, August and September the Del Ray Business Association (DRBA) features businesses along Mt. Vernon Avenue, special events, food and music from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Pets are ALWAYS welcome.
Last night’s theme was ‘Music + Dance’. Quite a few music groups, like the Rainbow Rock Band below, lined the Avenue last night.
There was a trolley, rented by the DRBA, to take folks up and down the Avenue.
