Over the weekend of December 10th, we discovered Van Ness looks good all decked out for the holidays.
Van Ness Main Street’s “Made in DC” pop-up market at 4340 Connecticut Avenue had caroling, visits from Santa and 25 local vendors. Some 2,400 shoppers bought more than $20,000 of merchandise. On Saturday, dogs and their people lined up to get their photos taken with Santa. This raised $1,200 for City Dogs Rescue.
And on Sunday, Santa sat with kids, and the Singing Capital Chorus invited everyone to sing along to their favorite carols.
Van Ness Main Street worked with UDC, which owns the space, to make this happen. Members of Van Ness Main Street Board and UDC were thrilled with the success of this event.
