Nothing quite brings people together like a street festival. It’s no surprise that a community as strong as Ward 1 is home to the District’s longest running festival, Adams Morgan Day. On Sunday, September 9th DC came out to celebrate all the area had to offer; from music and dance, to food and art.
The weather, unfortunately, had other ideas, but thanks to some well places bricks the tent was up and Team Sycamore was ready to go. It’s weather conditions like this that really show the strength of a community and before long 18th street was a sea of brightly colored umbrellas.
Street festivals are more than just a chance to experience local culture, it’s also fantastic opportunity for candidates to engage with voters. Even standing under a rainbow umbrella, residents couldn’t be more focussed on the November election, and I was able hear more about Ward 1, and what they expect from their next councilmember.
For this reason, the day was a huge success, but I couldn’t have done it without help, whether it was the Adams Morgan Day volunteers that literally held down tents in the wind, or my own Team Sycamore who braved the rain to speak to voters. My thanks go out to everyone.
With election less than two months away, this is one of many events I will be attending. Please keep checking out Facebook page for updates, and don’t forget to join us this weekend for our Team Sycamore volunteer event.
Have a great week,
Jamie and the team.
