Photos From FoRIA’s Fabulous Fall Fest

by Shani on September 25, 2012

On Saturday the Friends of RIA (FoRIA) held their first annual Fall Fest. The concept was to showcase and celebrate Rhode Island Avenue. Most of the activities took place between South Dakota and 20th Streets, NE. It was great to see neighbors of all ages and backgrounds come together in the spirit of neighborhood pride. Some of the highlights of the day included a food drive, several flea markets, free HIV/AIDS testing, RIA history talks, demonstrations at Art Enables, and a discussion by Neighbors United for DC Statehood at Lace restaurant featuring beer from DC Brau. We are looking forward to next years fair, which I am sure will be even bigger and better. Great job FoRIA!
