Fiesta DC 2008 took place last Sunday, September 28. These are mostly photos of the parade. It was pretty hot! And pretty fun! Ward One city council member Jim Graham was there, with council at-large candidate Carol Schwartz of all people. There were a couple of drummer troupes, performers on stilts, dancers, multiple music stages, lots of country pride and food of all stripes. Not sure of the attendance, but the festival seemed more expansive than the 2007 version, taking over Argonne Place as well as parts of Lamont and 17th Streets. I like this fest, especially if its going to be the "new" Mt Pleasant Day, which sadly hasn't happened, on full scale, since 2005.
