Full Columbia Heights Day schedule announced; it's Oct 5.!

It's almost party time. The 7th annual Columbia Heights Day is less than a month away, and they recently announced the full schedule of events and performances. There's music, a trivia contest (with Dalton who runs the Looking Glass Lounge's trivia, and is awesome at it,) a momo eating contest from Mad Momo's, lots of music and other performances, and a whole lot more.

There's also a whole stag for kids, plus lots of booths for craftspeople, local businesses and organizations, local pols, and a lot more. And back as before is the food truck row on Kenyon Street, which is always pretty awesome.

The whole shebang starts at 10am with a yoga workshop and runs until 5 pm. As mentioned, it's October 5th at the Tubman Elementary School field at 11th and Kenyon (across from Wonderland.)

Here's more info from their website, and they're always looking for volunteers and sponsors! It's an all-volunteer event, so help them out!
