Travel Diary: Washington, D.C. – Day 4

Washington D.C. has a diverse population and my husband and I were fortunate to be in the right place at the right time to join the throng of spectators gathering to watch a Hispanic parade.  We bicycled to the Smithsonian Institute of Natural History to begin our tours of some of the wonderful and free of charge (kinda…taxpayers pay for it) Museums.  As we walked along National Mall, we passed people gathered in groups, putting makeup on and making last minute adjustments to costumes, preparing for the parade along Constitution Avenue.  The mood was festive and the costumes colorful!

Reds Baseball Opening Day Parade

I’ve never attended the Findlay Market Parade or festivities for the Reds Baseball Opening Day in Cincinnati…up until Monday!  It was tons of fun!  The parade winds around Downtown.  We were at Fountain Square, where there were booths, music, food and drink!  I went with a few girlfriends and wanted to share some of our fun with you.  It wasn’t rainy…this photo is of a cool water feature in the Banks area of Downtown Cincinnati.
