About this Event
Friday Night Full Moon Walk - Georgetown Waterfront and Potomac River (FREE)
Washington DC's Georgetown waterfront and Potomac River are spectacular in the evening, and even more so during a full moon. With the September full moon falling on a Friday/Saturday come join us for a pleasant evening walk with friendly people.
Our walk will start and end at the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro and cover approximately 2.5 miles past several noteworthy points, with several breaks along the way. Please note, this is more of a walk than a guided tour - although some brief information on the sites we’re visiting may be provided.
This is an in-person event, not a livestream/online/virtual/Zoom program.
Registration: FREE - this event is open to the public and all are welcome to join us. Pets are welcome.
Weather: The event will take place light rain (sprinkles) or shine. If it's on our calendar, then we're proceeding as scheduled.
Meeting Point: The Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro (I Street and 23rd Street NW). Look for your host Robert, wearing a fedora-style hat and a pink shirt, and a large group of friendly people with name tag stickers, which we'll hand out. If you arrive late just catch up via the posted itinerary.
Icebreaker Introductions: We should have a good-sized group and so instead of everyone introducing themselves to the group we will get to know each other by distributing blank stickers and colored markers and we’ll ask everyone to write down on their sticker: 1). first name. 2). favorite food. 3). dream vacation. Example: “Michele - Strawberries - Kenya” or “Robert - Chocolate - Tokyo”.
