Columbia Heights Day is tomorrow! Lots of food, music, vendors and more

Tomorrow is the big day -- Columbia Heights Day, our neighborhood's annual festival, with music, food, events, activities and fun for adults and kids. It runs from 11am to 6pm at the Tubman School field (11th and Kenyon) and along 11th Street NW from Kenyon to Park.

It's rain or shine, so everybody turn out! The rain shouldn't be too bad, and if it is, the restaurants and bars along 11th Street have a lot of good deals.

Here's the full schedule.
