Fun and Games and Workshops for PARK(ing) Day 2017
Thursday September 14, 2017
On Friday, September 15th the MVT CID will join with 5th Street Ace Hardware to transform two parking spaces on 5th Street, NW – just north of K Street, NW and in front of the hardware store – into a 40-foot contiguous pop-up park or park(let) as part of 2017 PARK(ing) Day. In one parking space, the hardware store will fabricate a complimentary workshop and outdoor seating area, where store staff will lead free informational workshops to customers and visitors walking by. In the second parking space, the MVT CID will welcome guests to a free game area, including oversized wooden “jenga” blocks, plinko, and tic-tac-toe. The MVT CID/5th Street Ace Hardware park(let) will be open from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Each year, working in conjunction with the District Department of Transportation, DC businesses put their creativity on display, building pop-up parks and living rooms in curbside parking spaces. Come by this Friday and join the fun!
