4th of July Block Party Returns to U Street

June 25, 2011


Come on out to the 4th of July block party!  Right here in the middle of the Newton Booth neighborhood, on U Street between 25th and 26th Streets, people from around the neighborhood will be gathering to grill tasty food, listen to music, visit with their neighbors…and after dark, set off some fireworks!

The festivities start at 6:00 p.m., and of course it’s free.  Bring your own chairs, meat to grill, and drinks (no glass, sorry).  Bringing fireworks is optional.  (Remember, we’ll have children in attendance…and plus, it’s dry weather and fire season…so please keep the pyrotechnic activities safe and sane, okay? Thanks.)

What better way to celebrate America than to get to know the neighbors right here in your own community…and, of course, have some fun at the same time?  Hope to see you there!
