Fiesta DC no longer coming to Columbia Heights?

A few months ago various folks (ANC commissioners, neighborhood groups, etc) reported that Fiesta DC, a big Latin-American festival, would be taking place on 14th Street in Columbia Heights later this month.

However, checking their website, it says Mt. Pleasant Street on September 27. Not sure what happened since I first heard about it, so stay tuned! It might have something to do with the construction on 14th.

Fiesta DC couldn't get permits for the fiesta on 14th Street; Fire and Emergency Services wouldn't permit the closure of 14th close to their station at 14th and Newton. The shift of the Fiesta back to Mount Pleasant was a last-minute change to salvage this year's Fiesta. -- Jack
