The Caribbean Meets Georgia Avenue
While Barack Obama was busy working out at our local gym, The Heights Life was enjoying a day in the Caribbean.
The Caribbean Carnival Parade took place on Saturday. We grabbed some grass on one of the street islands and waited about an hour and a half for the sounds of the Caribbean islands to come our way.
It was pretty wild. Photos and pictures are below. We didn't make it to the festival, but opted for brunch at Domku.
The highlight of the parade for this blogger was the Fenty Smart Car, natch. The mayor was throwing green beads about, and every other political candidate in the parade was doing the same and hoping they'd be mistaken for Fenty.
