Columbia Heights Day was super fun this year. The weather was perfect and the good vibes were plentiful. Like last year there was lots of good music but unlike last year there was a popular petting zoo and a phenomenal cup cake eating contest. Honestly I think I had more fun watching the cup cake eating contest than I did at all the Nats games I attended. Certainly the crowd was more lively.

Sadly, Council Member Graham didn’t participate but he was a judge. Council Member Carol Schwartz also looked on and one of her opponent’s in the upcoming election, Patrick Mara, did participate.

As you can tell from the photos, what made the contest so much fun was the no hands rule.

If you attended what was your favorite part? Lots more photos, including many more hilarious photos from the cup cake eating contest, after the jump.

Wonderland and Looking Glass Lounge owner Matthew was a fierce competitor.

Wonderland and LGL owner Rose also put in a good effort.
