MVT CID Joins NPS for Founder’s Day Event on National Mall

Wednesday August 17, 2016

The National Park Service (NPS) turns 100 on Thursday, August 25 and the MVT CID is joining the celebration. NPS is holding a Founder’s Day celebration on the National Mall from August 21-27 that will include a number of activities and events to both celebrate the NPS Centennial and to engage visitors in learning about American culture and history as expressed on and through the National Mall and Memorial Parks. As part of the celebration, there will be a Family Festival on Saturday, August 27 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM at Constitution Gardens. In addition to stage performances and family activities, NPS will have exhibitors with educational (and fun!) activities and exhibits. The MVT CID will be sharing information about our community at the Family Festival and will also be a sponsor of face painting for kids. The MVT CID is highly engaged with NPS regarding the maintenance and activation of the five NPS reservations within our community, which can be viewed on our interactive map at
