Columbia Heights Day is coming up!

By Robyn Mincher

The second annual Columbia Heights Day is coming October 4th, and it's not your average street fair with fake handbag stalls and overpriced interpretations of Jackson Pollock. This quirky neighborhood has finally established itself as more UP than coming, and it's ready to celebrate. Free yoga, a pet costume parade, followed by a petting zoo...two stages featuring a capoeira performance, a mariachi group (consisting of employees of a local beloved Mexican joint), lots of bands and DJs...Moonbounce, drink/food specials at surrounding bars/restaurants AND a cupcake eating competition. Give me unlimited red velvet with cream cheese frosting and sign me up.

This may be a stupid question, but where will the festivities be? The CH Day website lists music at the "Wonderland Ballroom Bandstand" and the "DCUSA Second Stage". Does this mean events will take place at both 11 St and 14th St? Is it too much to ask for a map of where things will happen? The website has a link that says "Get Here" but if you click it, it doesn't say where "here" is. CH is a large neighborhood.

I've linked to it on the last couple posts, it's all in the Harriet Tubman Elementary School fields on 11th between Kenyon and Irving

I am so excited! Last year had some really cool performers, and the added Wonderland bandstand will be lots of fun. And who doesn't like cupcakes?
