Parade on 13th Street

Yesterday I heard some noise outside my house, and walked out to find a parade going south on 13th Street. There were about 30 paraders with drums and other instruments, and they said they were from the Rhyhtm Workers Union, a group which does activism and has drum circles. Some people from the Code Pink antiwar group had joined up.

They stopped at 13th and Clifton for awhile and said were headed to the African American Civil War Memorial on U Street. Pretty cool to see.

Did you notice anything in the neighborhood?

I saw them from my balcony on 13th. I saw the ones in dresses that evening on U street. Very fun parade.
