Photos From the Georgia Avenue Fall Festival

Last weekend, DC Thrive organized their first Georgia Avenue Fall Festival at the site for the former Bruce Monroe School. It was an enjoyable event with music, vendors, and great community engagement. Below are a few photos from the event.

    Looks fun. Too bad you voted to get rid of that park. I wonder where it will be next year.

      Hahaa, I see what you did here. Look on the bright side, given it’s history you’ll likely have the park for at a minimum 5 more years until the project actually starts (if ever)!

    The wonderful festival took up only about 1/4 of the current site so I’d bet that there will be space enough once the site is built out. Fingers crossed.

      Ha! Don’t bet on it, and not exactly true. There may not even be a park since the city refuses to outline a plan; even as they make preparation to give the land to developers. Just terrible! The one bright spot is that people are pissed, so hopefully we’ll get some new leadership out of all this.
