Let's explore a different part of the city and take advantage of the predicted nice weather for Saturday. The Southwest Waterfront community honors the 100-year anniversary of the gift of trees from Tokyo to Washington, DC witheight celebratory hours of free music, water-related activities, cultural experiences, live entertainment and delicious foods. And fireworks! We'll check out the music - Curtis Pope and the Midnight Movers, the Diggity Dudes and the Nen Daiko Japanese Drummers - get some food and drink, see the Pink Palooza of lighted docked vessels along the seawall, and watch the fireworks. They will be an original display, provided by the City of Nagaoka, renowned throughout Japan for its spectacular fireworks festival, created especially for the 2012 Centennial. At 8:30pm, fireworks will light up the Washington Channel. Perhaps we can get a drink after.
We will meet on the sidewalk area outside the Waterfront Metro (Green Line) at 6:00 PM and walk to the festivities at 6:15 PM. (There's a big Safeway next door.) My phone number is[masked] if you come late, but it's always much easier to meet us at the appointed time.
