It’s almost Third Thursday, and you’re again invited to the party on the C Street Plaza!

Hosted by Eastern Market Main Street (EMMS), Third Thursdays connects people to place through community-building activities focused on showcasing the historic Capitol Hill neighborhood.  Running May through September 2019, Third Thursdays focuses on the many (fun!) ways people move through space.

During the July 18th event, EMMS will highlight walking with activities ranging from free dance class for ages 3-6 from Studio One Dance, visor decorating, and music and movement with the Southeast Library.

You can also see a special performance of Contradiction Dance Theatre’s ‘Little White Lies’ at 7 p.m. A fractured fairytale for our times, the play explores truth and lies as they manifest in the ‘Self’, and in community, politics, war, entertainment and relationships.

Play Giant Jenga or checkers, join in the scavenger hunt, or add a song to the Community Dance Playlist. There are also events with local businesses, such as games night at Labyrinth Games and Puzzles (645 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) and a soiree at French boutique Paris Bleu (321 Seventh St. SE, Second Fl.) –and much, more more.

This Thursday’s event takes place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the C Street Plaza SE (between 7th and 8th Streets SE). Join the fun!
