Humane Rescue Alliance Puppies Headline May 12 Farragut Friday

From our friends at the Golden Triangle BID...

Day of Games, Food and Rescue Dogs in Golden Triangle

From May through September, the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) presents a wide array of free, outdoor events, highlighted by its signature “Farragut Fridays” series each week in Farragut Park, at Connecticut Avenue and K Street, NW, Washington, DC.

The 2017 inaugural Farragut Friday on May 12 features:
• A showcase of adoptable puppies from the Humane Rescue Alliance (formerly the Washington Humane Society and Washington Animal Rescue League.) Along with the puppies, the Alliance will bring along some of their human companions to help find forever homes for these lovable pets
• “Outdoor Office” from 9 AM to 5 PM for use by area workers and free WiFi access
• “Picnic in the Park” noon to 2 PM lunchtime activities, including lawn games

In addition to being set up for picnics in Farragut Park on Fridays, the Golden Triangle also hosts weekly Picnic in the Park events at two other locations from noon to 2 PM on Wednesdays in Murrow Park, at 18th and H streets, and Thursdays at Monroe Park, at 20th and I Streets.

Farragut Fridays are planned for each Friday this summer through September 29, with the outdoor Golden Cinema movies series to run from June 2nd through early August. For a full schedule of Golden Cinema features, as well as lunchtime activities, please consult our website at https://goldentriangledc.com. The Golden Triangle BID website will be updated throughout the summer with details on what is planned for each particular Friday.
