Columbia Heights Day is this Saturday the 28th! What's happening there?

As you hopefully know already, our annual neighborhood festival of Columbia Heights Day is this Saturday the 28th at the Harriet Tubman School field, 11th and Irving. So what's going to be there? A lot!

Starting at 10 am, there's a bike tour and a scavenger hunt at Tubman field, plus yoga at the same time (from NCH advertiser Quiet Mind Yoga!) There's also a dog show, tons of live music (Irish, reggae, rock, Latin, hip hop and more), a King and Queen of Columbia Heights contest, and the popular (and hilarious) cupcake eating contest.

There's also going to be a lot of booths with local organizations, businesses, politicians, craftspeople, and more. The DC State Fair will be there too with a pie baking contest and other fair-related events. I'm guessing local establishments will have deals too; they did that last year.

It should be a great time, and I hope lots of folks come out. The full schedule is on their site.
