These are photos from Old Town Alexandria's Scottish Walk on December 5, 2009. Some of these images lend the appearance that we would get 2' of snow, but there was no accumulation here near the Potomac River.

The St. Andrew's Society of Washington, D.C. partners with The Campagna Center and the City of Alexandria to host the 39th Annual Scottish Christmas Walk Parade in historic Old Town. As the centerpiece of the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend, the parade celebrates the City's Scottish heritage.

It was a fun day.
