    DC Carnival 2012 is a bust. Instead, I'll watch European Championship soccer.

    DJ Spyda said that the pool Party Is DEF going on- that's the cooler splash in Bowie (pic under photos- 2nd page of first set of pics) - Entry is $25 at the gate- coolers allowed in until 6pm. Heidi and I are waiting to make our decision til we hear back from Carlotta about the situation at Crossroads.
    I have no idea about Georgia Ave- My heads spinning with all of this

    They are still moving forward. Small set up so far with a vendor cooking. And people showing up. I will post a pic.

    June 23, 2012

  • Attalah G.

    Wow, smh everything is cancelled. Is the anything on Georgia avenue at all?

    June 23, 2012

  • Lindsay

    Oh my gosh- what a freakin nightmare! OK- Carlotta- Please let us know if Crossroads is still putting their show on . . . supposed to start at 3. If it's not up and running, then we can meet in Bowie- Dj Spyda is working that one- so let me confirm with him that it is actually still happening.

    June 23, 2012

  • Shaun

    Ummmm ... actually word just got out (literally via text and e-mail) that In De Road was cancelled. I'll notify you about any updates I receive from here on out ...

    June 23, 2012

  • Lindsay

    OK- Just like Shawn said- there is "In de Road- in DC. There is also the cooler splash which is being held at ‎12108 Sondberg Lane, Bowie MD from 4-10. I am posting the flier in the Pictures on this meet up page- Please have a look at it for all of the details. I am thinking to do this one simply b/c it goes later into the night.

    Well I came down and its a bit congested within the city. Traffic lights off on the main streets around the event. But there are still vendors setting up.

    June 23, 2012

  • Shaun

    All...
    In de Road is going on now from 11am-7pm. I'm on my way now (wearing yellow shirt and blue jeans shorts.) It's being held on 1350 Okie St, NE in front of Love Nightclub.

    Interested? See you there...

    June 23, 2012

  • Attalah G.

    Does anyone know if there is anything going on in dc today?

    June 23, 2012

  • Lindsay

    Apparently crossroads got flooded and no one is answering there is I'm assuming today was called off. I am trying to get an address for another venue. Will update more shortly.

    Under the weather, think I may sit this one out... Is anyone going to the Carnival Parade on July 14 or any of the events July 13-15 for Carnival? Please let me know!

    June 23, 2012

  • Jai

    Michael, the Carnival Parade is on July 14th in Baltimore.

    June 22, 2012

  • Heidi

    I wanna go DeAngelo. I am reluctant to buy my ticket cuz I don't wanna go alone... arrrrgh

    June 21, 2012

  • De Angelo E.

    4103 Baltimore @ 3... Is there a carnival also or just the crossroad event?

    I agree Lindsay, but this is why I am utilizing the message board. Not all people can show up at the same time so I am seeing if others want to arrange other options. Also, we could exchange telephone numbers for those members who are going to be later than others and don't want to try to identify members they may or may not have met yet in a crowd.

    June 18, 2012

  • Lindsay

    let's say that we could meet outside, near the takeout doors in the back of the building. It's the rear left corner of the building. If it's scorching hot, and again depending on their setup, we could meet inside the restaurant (just walk through the takeout door area, into the restaurant) I will plan on getting there right at 3 or maybe a little earlier. Will make a post if the location changes. See you Saturday!!

    June 18, 2012

  • Lindsay

    No one wants to go alone and that's why we have this group, so yes, a meetup location is important. However, if you get there late, it is not fair to expect we'll spend the entire time in one place- Afterall, there Is dancing to be had!! I'm sure it's going to be really packed too, so we might get shuffled around. I don't know what the set up is going to be which makes it a little hard to determine a meet up spot. . Since they can't change the layout of the building itself,

    Hey! Will be leaving from silver spring if anyone need a ride

    Attalah, I was planning on public transit, but it's not on the metro line so you would have to take the train and then transfer to a bus. Depending on when you are going we could meet at either a metro or the bus stop if you didn't wanna go alone.

    Yes. At Crossroads. And I work until 1 pm in Arlington, VA so it wouldn't be until the afternoon b/c I would have to take public transit and from what Google maps said it would be an hour or more via public transit. Heidi, what time were you planning on going?

    June 17, 2012

  • Attalah G.

    How is everybody getting there? This is my first meetup with this group and I dont drive.

    June 17, 2012

  • Heidi

    I have to work and will come after work. This is at crossroads right? katherine.. i think we are going as a group. I dont wanna go alone either. What time will u get there?

    Were people planning to go as a group, or meeting up there? Could we set up a meeting point? I have been to a couple meetups and have had difficulties finding other members. I would like to go, but only as a group.

    June 17, 2012

  • Jai

    To Shaun's point, this site has a list of Caribbean themed activities throughout the year, with Calendar: http://www.trinijunglejuice.com/tjjevents/events/index.php?com=searchresult&s=&e=&k=&r=North+America+-+NE

    Still hope to see as many of you as possible at Crossroads, even if only for a little while.

    June 17, 2012

  • Shaun

    Just to throw this group into further chaos, there an entirely parallel stream of Carnival-themed parties and events that weekend from what seems to be separate from the folks at DCCC:

    http://dccarnival.com I likely won't be doing the Crossroads events but, instead, attending these with my buddies from out of town. Featuring DJs like Private Ryan and Sprang International and artists ranging from Kerwin Dubois and Iwer George. Hit me up ([masked]) if interested...

    June 17, 2012

  • Jai

    I've updated the meetup to contain the latest and greatest on DC Carnival. In short, it has been split into an event at Crossroads and a parade in Baltimore. I've create another meetup for the parade. Please read and update your status indicating whether you still plan to attend this event at Crossroads. Thanks.
