Hello Friends! Happy Friday.
This weekend is shaping up rather nicely. There will be beautiful weather and lots of fun things to do. In the spirit of Earth Day, ThatKellieGirl will be volunteering at the White House Garden Tours. I love flowers and the White House Kitchen Garden is a great model on how to and what to grow in your home garden. Afterwards, I am attending a tea with my God Daughter and her Mother. As you know, I always am excited to don a hat and a pair of gloves! :-)
There also are several festivals either kicking off or closing out this weekend. Whatever you do don’t miss them.
Starting us off is The Water Street Project which is an 11 day-long temporary arts exhibition in a vacant building underneath Whitehurst Freeway in Georgetown. The project’s grand opening is tonight at 8PM.
The U.S. National Parks Service celebrates National Park Week with activities and promoting people to visit their local national park.
Activist Van Jones will discuss and sign his new book, Rebuild the Dream at Busboys and Poets (14th & V Sts NW) at 6:30PM.
The Earth Day Rally will take place on the National Mall as well as a “Float In” with Ralph Nader marking the 40th anniversary of The Clean Water Act and to say no to dirty, polluted water. Here is a list of Earth Day activities and events in the area.
And Filmfest DC is closing out this weekend, so try to find time to see some provocative, exciting, and often brave stories from varying perspectives and showcasing important voices.
Whatever you do, stay safe, have fun and keep the faith. :-)
Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl
