Dear PoP – What’s Up With The Caribbean Day Festival/Parade This Saturday?

DSCN0794, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

“Hey PoP,

I am new to DC this summer and I have really been enjoying your postings and information on the city and the Petworth area where I live.

I am interested in getting a little information about the Caribbean festival and parade this weekend and was wondering if you could provide your readers with a few details. So far their website has been a little sparse. As a longtime resident of DC can you provide any info on this years festival or of festivals in the past?”

Yes! I can’t believe I forgot to mention this. It is amazing and you all must immediately change your plans to attend the parade this Saturday. Seriously. It is amazing. If you don’t believe me, check out photos from last year’s parade.

From the DC Caribbean Carnival Web site:

“The annual Extravaganza Parade will be staged along the Georgia Avenue corridor on Saturday, June 27, 2009 , and will commence at Missouri Avenue at 11:00 a.m. and terminate at the international marketplace at “DE SAVANNAH” – Banneker Recreation Park. DC Caribbean Carnival will host the international marketplace at “DE SAVANNAH ” from 12:00 noon to 8:00 p.m featuring food, craft and entertainment”

I recommend you get to Georgia Ave. anytime between 12 and 2 pm. And don’t wear any nice clothes cause you’ll get dirty!
