Columbia Heights Day is August 27th: fundraisers, shirts, King & Queen contestants needed

Columbia Heights Day is upon us! The 5th anniversary of the fun neighborhood festival takes place at the Tubman School field at 11th and Kenyon (across from Wonderland.)

They're hosting a pre-festival party and volunteer event on the 25th and Wonderland and they're also looking for contestants for the annual King and Queen of Columbia Heights -- email chmonarchy@gmail.com to enter, and you must be a CH resident.

They'll have DC flag t-shirts in red, green and blue for sale at the Community Marketplace on this Saturday, and festival t-shirts with the official logo will be available next week. The red one gets me comments whenever I wear it around, it's pretty cool.

The event is getting bigger too, with three performance stages with lots of bands and other shows. 11th Street from Lamont to Irving will be blocked off and Kenyon will be filled with food trucks and food carts. Confirmed food trucks are BBQ Bus, DC Slices, Eat Wonky, El Floridano, Pleasant Pops, AZN Eats.

Sounds pretty great. The only minor quibble I have is that the font on their logo is cheesy. But in any case, I'm looking forward to it!
