Capitol Hill July 4 Parade 2017

Posted on May 17th, 2017 by Elizabeth Nelson

Again this year, CHRS will celebrate Independence Day by fielding a contingent in the Capitol Hill Community 4th of July Parade. We’ll carry the CHRS banner and toss Mardi Gras beads into the crowd. The route begins at the I-295/395 overpass (at 8th and I Streets, SE) and ends at the Eastern Market Metro Plaza. The parade steps off at 10 a.m. and takes just over an hour to nish.

If you would like to participate, please contact Elizabeth Nelson at, or just show up a half-hour in advance and find our crew. It’s a lot of fun, especially for children, so invite your young neighbors to join you. The more, the merrier!

We’re always looking for interesting vehicles to tote our beads. If you have a vintage truck or auto that we can press into service, please let us know.
