Found: A Unicorn.
There's a restaurant in Old Town Alexandria called the Hard Times Cafe. It's a great little chili place that has meals that could give you a heart attack just looking at them-- chili cheddarburger, anyone? Outside of their restaurant, they keep an old truck with a horse in front of a flag in the bed (it's funny when you first see it, but you get quite used to him).
After looking at some pictures, I found out yesterday that he was in the St. Patrick's Day Parade, but dressed as a unicorn with a (human) leprechaun riding on his back. When we went down to the marina in attempt #2 of our Saturday plans, we passed by him and saw he was still decorated for St. Pat's-- complete with a pot of (candy) gold. We had to get Alice's picture with him.
The picture's not the best as I took it with my phone, but you can get the point.
