Christmas Lights DC Art Car Parade with Brightest Young Things Dec. 18
Instead of reaching for that tacky, felt-adorned sweater, dig out those old Christmas lights and hop in the car. Flying Dog and Brightest Young Things are taking our annual holiday party on the road.
On Saturday, December 18, we’re hosting a Christmas Lights Art Car Parade in Washington, DC.
The mission of Christmas Lights is for a band of merry revelers in Art Cars to descend upon Georgetown, grand marshaled by the Flying Dog Winnebago. (Willie’s Bus ain’t got nothing on this Gonzo land yacht.) The parade is open to the public, so we encourage everyone to decorate their vehicles and join in for what is guaranteed to be a night for the history books.
Parade participants will assemble at Jack’s Boathouse at 7 pm for a welcome reception featuring CakeLoveGonzo Cupcakes (made with our Gonzo Imperial Porter) and hot cider. From there, the plan of attack is as follows:
- 8 pm: Head down K Street to Rock Creek Parkway, up to Politics and Prose
- 8:30 pm: Politics and Prose – Celebrity Guests’ LIVE Reading of How The Grinch Stole Christmas! with complimentary Flying Dog beers.
- 9:30 pm: Comet Ping Pong – Culmination party with Flying Dog draft specials, LIVE music from Sherell Rowe (DC) and Sidewalk Driver (Boston), and all sorts of kick ass awards for a variety of superlatives relevant to the night’s festivities.
THE FINE PRINT: In keeping with the holiday spirit, this entire event is FREE. All car entries will need a designated driver on hand at the start of the Christmas Lights parade. In addition to art cars, DC’s hardcore cyclists are also welcome to participate with art bicycles. Times after the 7 pm start at Jack’s Boathouse are approximate.
