This weekend is the annual DC Caribbrean Carnival, which consists of a big, flashy parade and a festival near Howard U. The parade is on Saturday from 11 am to 4 pm, going down Georgia Avenue between Missouri Avenue NW, and Barry Place NW, which is right at Howard. The fest happens both days in Banneker field, right next to the pool at 2500 Georgia Ave (Georgia and Euclid) from noon to 7 pm. Should be pretty cool, I'm gonna try to get over there - I've heard good things from folks who've gone before. They have music, big costumes, floats, food, and so on from the Caribbean.

Some streets will be closed too: Georgia Ave, Barry Place, 9th Street, Sherman Ave, and V Street. See here for the times and locations of all the closures.
