Columbia Heights Day announced: Saturday, Oct. 11 at Tubman School

Columbia Heights Day, our neighborhood's fun annual festival, is coming back for its 8th edition, and the organizers have announced the date: Saturday, October 11th at the Tubman Elementary School field, 11th and Kenyon.

Like previous years, there's a ton of events, arts, music, food and more, both for adults and kids. Here's the agenda so far. The adult tricycle races sound pretty awesome and the petting zoo and eating contests are popular events from previous years.

They're also looking for volunteers and sponsors, see that information below. The event is put on by the  Columbia Heights Day Initiative, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. I expect we'll hear more too -- last years had deals from local bars and restaurants after the event, for example.
