Happier times

One of the oldest neighborhood festivals is not happening this year. WAMU reports:

“Beset by a crisis of leadership, tens of thousands of dollars worth of unpaid bills to the city and a possible federal investigation into financial irregularities linked to a former D.C. Council candidate, the organization that sponsors the festival — Adams Morgan Main Street — recently concluded that it wouldn’t be able to put on the festival in 2015.”

You can read the whole sordid tale here.

There’s been a lot of ups and downs with the day in recent years but this is very sad news. Hopefully they make it back in full force for 2016.
