DeEvening Links: Happy Fourth of July


The Palisades Parade kicks off at MacArthur Boulevard and Whitehaven Parkway NW at 11 a.m. (SUSAN BIDDLE - FOR THE WASHINGTON POST)
It’s been a tough few days. The power’s still out in a lot of places, and folks across the region are modifying their Fourth of July plans accordingly. But rest assured: The Palisades Parade is full steam ahead — and pun somewhat intended, as it’ll likely be in the mid 90s by the time the last marchers come off MacArthur Avenue. It’s gonna be so awesome, I’ll be needing a couple of days off — see you Monday.
