July 4th Bash: Friends, Families, Neighbors Celebrated
More than 300 neighbors, friends and families gathered at the Loree Grand Field on July 4 last week from 5-8 p.m. to celebrate our country's independence with their neighbors. Harris Teeter donated hundreds of hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, cookies, water, and an abundance of water to feed the attendees. Thank you Harris Teeter for your generous support!

Attendees could choose from an array of activities, including face painting, bocce, corn hole, bear pong (no, that is not a typo), as well as jumping on a moonbounce, running through a sprinkler, or just sitting with their friends and family. Mayor Gray made a surprise appearance at this neighborhood party, and led the parade of children, dogs, and bicycles around the block. Prizes were given to the most patriotically dressed dogs and children.

This free and public event was organized by the NoMa BID. Many thanks to Harris Teeter for sponsoring all of the free food at the event, Capitol Hill North Neighborhood Association, Eckington Civic Association, Bates Area Civic Association, DC Bocce League, Union Kitchen, Unleashed by PETCO, and Metro Mutts for partnering with NoMa BID for this event, and to Toll Brothers Apartment Living for providing the site.
