Want to explore one of the city’s emerging neighborhoods and have some fun in the process? Today marks the beginning of Zestfest, a three-week long outdoor festival to activate spaces, create new parks, and make the streets of NoMa vibrant and exciting.
In case you aren’t familiar with NoMa, it’s the district just north of Capitol Hill and Union Station, north of Massachusetts Avenue (hence, NoMa). And for the next three weeks, various venues around the area will host all kinds of events for the public to enjoy and help them get to know the locale.
Especially fun for families will be the Capitol Hill North Neighborhood Association Picnic (CHNNP) this Saturday, October 9. From 12pm – 3pm, there will be face painting, mommy & me yoga, a large canvas for kids to paint, tasty food, children’s music, and more.
