Potomac Day provides a chance to gather with friends and neighbors, to watch children whiz down giant pumped-up slides, rock to local bands and learn about local organizations and businesses. Local restaurants provide tasty food, the classic car show sports gleaming autos of yesteryear, and everyone has the opportunity to celebrate the community they live in. The parade, long in participants traveling a short distance, begins at 10:30 a.m. (line up by 10) on Chapel Drive and River Road and travels along River Road to Falls Road.
More than 6,000 people turn out for Potomac Day on average.
