Just Another DC Weekend


Just Another DC Weekend

It’s just another DC Weekend. Security forces are locking down the town and disrupting transit and traffic in advance of next week’s Nuclear Security Summit.

Expect dozens of weekend motorcades, a parade with huge balloons and marching bands, the Blessing of the Fleets Ceremony, a Japanese Street Festival, one White House demonstration in support of Togo’s president, another against the leader of Vietnam, and an event against anti-Semitism on the National Mall.

There are performances, fun runs, river clean-ups, blossom-peeping tourists, weekend subway repairs, high school bus tours, and marches of Mothers Against Bad Stuff.

Expect delays.
