One of Washington’s premiere day festivals is Columbia Heights Day, taking place on October 5.
The event is the brainchild of the Columbia Heights Day Initiative and its mission is to highlight local businesses in the Columbia Heights area and promote the values, character and history of neighborhood relationships in the area that are principled on diversity, service and community.
The first “Columbia Heights Day” took place in 2007, and was initially based around the Adams Morgan Day Festival that was already quite successful.
The 2013 version of the event truly features something for everyone.
Things kick off with a yoga workshop at 10 a.m. and really, is there a better way to start your day with a little stretching?
From there, it is time for some live music at 11 a.m. and these will be followed by some performances geared toward families, beginning at 1 p.m.
These are in addition to a plethora of games, arts & crafts for the kids, as well as food eating and trivia contests. Kids will also enjoy a petting zoo and a moon bounce that has also been made available. Over 40 local nonprofits, businesses and vendors will participate in Columbia Heights Day.
