'Mother of All Rallies,' 'Juggalo March,' cancer race to take place in DC over weekend

- Local authorities are preparing in advance for several events planned for this weekend.

The Mother of All Rallies, The Juggalo March on Washington, and the 37th Annual Race to Beat Cancer all take place in the District in and around the National Mall on Saturday.

Described as a pro-Trump unification rally, The Mother of All Rallies, plans to begin gathering around 11 a.m. on the Mall.

"No confederate flags, communist flags, or foreign flags allowed this is not a democrat or republican rally. It’s not a left or right rally. We condemn racists of all colors and supremacy of all colors. Our patriots are of all colors and we are uniting under our constitutional rights. We are Americans and our color shouldn't matter," reads part of a statement found on the event’s website.

The Juggalo March on Washington begins at 2 p.m. in front of the Lincoln Memorial and is a gathering of fans of the music group Insane Clown Posse. On the website, the organizers say the march is to "make a collective statement from the Juggalo Family to the world about what we are and what we are not."

"Recently Psychopathic Records’ court case in our lawsuit against the F.B.I. and Department of Justice for listing Juggalos as a "loosely organized hybrid gang" in their 2011 Gang Task Force report was once again dismissed, meaning we are back to square one from a legal standpoint. We have tried to use the American judicial system to achieve justice and we failed," the statement continues.

Also on Saturday, the Race To Beat Cancer 5K will take begin and end in the Northwest and will pass close to the National Mall. The event benefits cancer research celebrates survivors, and honors those who have lost their battles with cancer.
