Get ready for one of the coolest festivals ever. The DC Carribbean Carnival is coming to Petworth next Sat. June 23rd! It is absolutely as cool as this picture makes it look. The festival goes along Georgia Ave, through a large part of Petworth. Unfortunately, I'm going to miss this year's but the previous ones I have attended have been unbelievable. There are a series of 18 wheeler trucks that are entirely filled with speakers jamming music from different countries in the Caribbean with dancers trailing the trucks. Plus there is tons of delicious food from all over the Caribbean also represented. I recommend grabbing some jerk chicken from Sweet Mango and line up early so you get a good viewing spot. I like watching from the intersection of Georgia and New Hampshire. If you are in town, don't miss this awesome event! Thanks to Susan for the heads up.
