Potomac Day Is Saturday, Oct. 21

Potomac Day is a gift from the Potomac Chamber of Commerce to the community.

Potomac Day is Saturday, Oct. 21, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s a delightful, fun day for all.

All events are rain or shine.

The Parade is a rain or shine event. Line-up for the parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Chapel Road. You must register and will receive a call the week of the event with your section placement and/or monitors will be on hand the day of to help you find your spot. 

Falls and River Roads will close promptly at 10 a.m., so be sure to find your parking spot and walk to the Chapel Road start before then. The only vehicles allowed on Chapel Road are the vehicles that will be in the parade. 

This year, the Potomac Chamber of Commerce is holding a parade float contest with the theme horsing around. We hear that Scotland AME Church will have a remarkable float, and we can’t wait to see the others.

The parade will kick off at 10:30 a.m., ending around 11:45 a.m. behind the shopping centers. Then the Children’s Festival and Business Fair will be in full swing.

East-West Tae Kwon Do students line up waiting for the Parade to begin
