The H Street Festival will be held Saturday, September 19th from noon to 7 pm. H Street (from 4th to 14th Streets) will close earlier for set up and will remain closed until tear down and clean up are complete. Be prepared (and patient) for high traffic volume around the neighborhood and a lack of parking spaces in and around Trinidad, especially on streets to the south closer to H Street. There will also be changes to bus travel. At a minimum, as all of H Street from 14th Street to 4th Street will be closed, the X2, D8, and 90 buses will all be rerouted.
No press releases on road closures and transit changes are available yet from MPD, WMATA, or the H Street Festival but plan in advance for travel delays in moving about on Saturday (or walk down to enjoy the festival).
Fresh Farm Market at 13th and H Street indicated that they WILL be open regular hours on Saturday (9-12).
UPDATE: MPD reports that the child has been identified.
