Take a stroll for Earth Day, and bring your decorated umbrella with you!

The 2nd Annual Umbrella Stroll along 14th Street sponsored by Uptown Main Street kicks off this Saturday, April 20th from 12-3pm.

“Join us for an art-filled stroll down Uptown Main Street to celebrate springtime. We’ll brighten up the street with decorated umbrellas, enjoy live music and visit art activations crafted by local artists and community groups in our small businesses before heading to Upshur Park for a small Earth Day celebration and refreshments.”

We’ll have prizes for the best umbrellas in the following categories: 

1) Most Sustainable/Earth Friendly Umbrella 

2) Best Business Umbrella 

3) Best Community Umbrella 

4) Most Artistic Umbrella

Meet at 1400 Decatur Street NW, and the stroll will head down 14th Street and end up at Upshur Park for Earth Day festivities, including recycled art, plants to take home and food from local restaurants.

They’re doing a decorating party Wednesday afternoon, from 5-7pm at Andromeda Cultural Health (1400 Decatur Street NW). Details on Facebook.
