It’s an annual rite of passage; the day when Alexandria’s downtown region comes to life. The addition of more than 80 enormous flower pots along Broadway Street marks the unofficial start of summer. The Alexandria Downtown Merchants Association collects funds and coordinates the project in conjunction with the City of Alexandria. In addition to all of the great downtown stores and businesses, all of the plant life throughout downtown really brightens people’s day. If you haven’t been to Alexandria lately it’s time to come and rediscover downtown Alexandria. #downtownALX
*On a side note, if you are coming downtown, bicycles are welcome, but need to be walked along the sidewalks on Broadway Street. Routes to ride your bikes are on both Hawthorne and Fillmore streets.
