Remix Your Weekend: Improvise your way to the monuments
Improv show: Join the Georgetown Improv Association for a night of quick wit and outrageously funny comedy at Bulldog Alley. Saturday’s show at 9 p.m. will be their last show for the academic year, so don’t miss out if you haven’t been to one of their performances! Seats fill up fast. Tickets cost $6 for general admission and $4 for students, faculty, staff, and seniors. Get them at the door.
Breaking the bubble:
National Cherry Blossom Parade: One of D.C.’s biggest spring events is the Cherry Blossom Festival parade, which marks the climax and the end of the annual festival. From 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, giant floats, helium balloons, and celebrity artists march down Constitutional Avenue. Standing room along the parade route from 9th to 15th streets is free, but get there early if you want a good spot. After the parade, check out the annual Japanese street festival hosted by the Japanese-American Society of Washington, D.C. on 12th street and Pennsylvania Ave. The nearest metro stop to these two events is Federal Triangle.
Improv Everywhere’s MP3 Experiment: This Saturday at 3 p.m. at the National Mall between 6th and 7th streets SW, join Improv Everywhere’s latest MP3 Experiment, in which you cause a bit of a ruckus in public on a sunny D.C. afternoon. Follow the instructions listed here to participate in the event, and read more about past MP3 experiments here.
