Our Pick for the Weekend: A Colorful Caribbean Parade

Saturday, June 23: The DC Caribbean Festival is a feast for the eyes—as well as the other senses. A parade of performers, floats, and fantastic and colorful Caribbean costumes kicks off at 11 am at Georgia and Missouri avenues, NW. Check out this photo set to get a sense of the sights. The parade ends at Barry Place near Banneker Field, where the festival takes place with concerts, food, and more. $10 for the festival; the parade is free.

The DC Caribbean Festival is just one of lots of great activities going on this weekend.
