Holiday Lighting Event Scheduled for Park View/Petworth This Friday on Georgia Avenue

December 4, 2018

Last Friday, District Bridges hosted their annual tree lighting at the Columbia Heights plaza. This year, as part of their effort with the Georgia Avenue Main Street, they will be hosting an event on Georgia Avenue (see flyer to the right).

This Friday, December 7th, a holiday lighting event is schedule for Georgia Avenue. The event will begin at 6:30 pm and is at the corner of Rock Creek Church Rd and New Hampshire Avenue, outside the old Sweet Mango.

Last night I caught up briefly with District Bridges’ Jennifer Kuiper who was with volunteers from Howard University wrapping up a day decorating the building in advance of Friday. The photos below give an idea of what to expect.

Area More Seasonal Following Weekend Events

December 18, 2017

Over the weekend, things started to look more like the holidays.

On Saturday, volunteers partnered with Wreaths Across America to lay wreaths on graves at the Armed Forces Retirement Home Cemetery.

… and on Sunday evening, neighbors in Kalorama decorated the lions on the southern side of Taft bridge on Connecticut Avenue.

Looking for Holiday Cheer

December 27, 2016

Perhaps its just me, but I have a sense that there are fewer holiday decorations in the neighborhood that in years past. Below are a few that I was able to find. If you’ve seen one that was particularly noteworthy, please share.

As tonight is Halloween, there will likely be a lot of trick-or-treaters out in the neighborhood. Be on the look out for them and enjoy the costumes and decorations.
