Sunny Weather Urged Holiday Crowd To Be Out In Alexandria

Scores of people flocked to Old Town over the Memorial Day weekend despite the city’s stay-at-home order that is technically still in effect amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The skies were too sunny and the weather too tempting on this day. Kevin Mamon, who gathered with close friends in Founders Park May 23 said, “This is too pretty a day to waste it at home A lot of us just graduated from George Mason [University] and just want to get out. We try to plan something like this every two weeks…we aren’t really afraid of the virus among ourselves.”
