    My favorite part is seeing the leaders of each represented church ride through the parade in a Bentley.

      How much do we have to pay for this? If its as much as the Church requires it’s members to tithe, Id rather pass. Thanks.

        They agreed to pay as much as they do for their on-street Sunday parking.

        It probably costs less than Rolling Thunder, which draws people who mostly stay in the suburbs.

    I LOVE this parade!! Last year my face hurt from smiling so much, and my throat from cheering on all the beautiful people!

    • pcat

      I agree. I’ve been going every year since I moved to Logan Circle. It’s like a small town parade with happy people, all enjoying the day.

  • KEDT

    I can’t figure out when the parade actually starts and ends. Does anyone know?

    • Rich

      It’s supposed to start at 11. Parades of all sorts usually don’t start on time, so it’s good to be in the Circle around 11, but not expect to see much until about 11:30 or later.

    So they can close down the streets for a parade, but a bike lane infringes on the church’s constitutional rights and is a “cancer”? SMH.

    • Kingman Park

      FWIW they pay to close the street.

      • Brian

        They absolutely DO NOT PAY. Have lived in Shaw for 20 years and this has been a major issue with may of the neighbors.
