Good morning fellow citizens of the home of the World Series champions! It was such a fun ride. That team is pretty special. And now we sleep.
Actually I’m kidding about sleep! Because…
Tonight is Halloween! Truly the best night on the Hill. Whether you are escorting tiny goblins on East Capitol Street, handing out treats or hiding out in your house with the lights off I hope you get the most out of the night. Check out our Halloween guide for more information.
Look, I know it is going to rain but grab an umbrella and get out there. Canceling or postponing trick-or-treating should be reserved for natural disasters and muggy rain is not that. How would we even organize such a thing? It’s a spontaneous moment of community! Just no. There’s candy on the line so the kids are motivated. Feel free to @ me.
You can always choose to observe All Hallows’ Eve in high style at Superfine at Union Market. The weekend-long art fair returns to DC with more art, events and fun. The early bird tickets are no longer available but single day tickets are still an option for $15 or $25. Enjoy the scene and maybe pick up something new for your wall.
Friday, East City Books hosts an evening of poetry with local artists
Holly Bass, Kyle Dargan, and Teri Ellen Cross Davis who will be reading and discussing their recent work. The reading begins at 7 p.m. and is free but RSVPs are encouraged.
Saturday is a great opportunity to check out the Hill Center’s Annual Pottery on the Hill show. Enjoy work from artists from around the country, many of who will be at the Friday night preview party. You can read more here.
Kids Euro Festival returns to the city. The Atlas Performing Arts Center hosts the Castle Puppet Theater Sevnica, Slovenia for a production of Grdi raček otherwise known as The Ugly Duckling. I wonder if the First Lady will make her way to H Street to catch up with some folks from her homeland? The performance is at 11 a.m. and tickets are free.
The celebratory parade for the Nationals will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday. It will begin at 15th and Pennsylvania NW and make it’s way to 3rd and Pennsylvania. I can’t be there so take pictures for me?
Sunday is the Prevent Cancer 5K at Nationals Park. The run raises money for cancer screenings and health education to under served communities. There will a walk for the more leisurely and a fun run for littles. Everyone is welcome to avail themselves to the batting cages and grab some stadium food while you relish once again that the Nats won the World Series!
