Thousands hit the streets of Old Town Alexandria Saturday for the 43rd annual Scottish Christmas Walk presented by The Campagna Center.
More than 120 Scottish clans, pipe and drum bands, reenactment groups, canine marchers, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus and local dignitaries participated in the chilly parade. Longtime WJLA Meteorologist Adam Caskey served as grand marshal.
Darth Vader, perhaps sensing a tremor in the Force, even made an appearance. And there were Tartan kilts—a whole lot of them.
The Scottish Walk and other weekend events are the biggest fundraising activities of the year for The Campagna Center, which delivers educational and social development programs for children, teens and adults in Alexandria.
