DC Caribbean Carnival Parade is June 25th. The parade route has been a bit shortened:

The annual Extravaganza Parade will be staged along the Georgia Avenue corridor on Saturday, June 25, 2011 , and will commence at Kansas Avenue at 11:00 a.m. and terminate at the international marketplace at “DE SAVANNAH” – Howard Center Lot @ Georgia Avenue & Bryant Street.

This is a love it or hate day for many. I love it.

Building up to the event there is the Petworth Library Family Program – Caribbean Festival Mask-Making:

Caribbean Carnival Mask Making and Storytelling

Petworth Library, Saturday, June 18

On Saturday, June 18 at the Petworth Neighborhood Library, located at 4300 Kansas Avenue, NW from 10:00 am until 12:30 pm, children and adults will have an opportunity to make masks, and listen to tales from the Caribbean!

This event is supported by the Caribbean Food Alliance, Georgia Avenue Business Association, the Caribbean Carnival Committee, the Caribbean Chamber of Commerce, the Petworth Library, the Caribbean Carnival Committee, Carnival Band Leaders Association and Councilmember Muriel Bowser.
