    The annual Folk Festival at Glen Echo. I can't remeber exactly when it is, but I want to say May. It is a good time with great live music, wares of all sorts being sold and other activities. Glen Echo used to be an amusement park that has been turned into an artists in residence park, among other things. Often there are art, pottery, dance, theatre, etc. goings on throughout the year.

    a cool statue called The Awakening.
    it's a big statue of a guy coming out of the ground.
    located in potomac park, i think. that's over near the jefferson memorial.
    I also love the Air&Space museum, and the National History museum.

    by GoldyFish Written Aug 24, 2002

    Go to the Congressional is near RFK stadium and is one of the most overlooked places in DC...I went there because John Philip Sousa is buried there (I read about it in a tour guide book that I bought)....also, J. Edgar Hoover, some members of Congress, Matthew Brady (famed Civil War photographer), and other is free and there is a map available of the cemetary (right at the entrance) is in the seedy section of town but well worth the trip....some of the monuments are fantastic

    If you're into sculpture, you have to check out the Hirshfeld Sculpture Garden, near the Washington Mall and Smithsonian Institution. It's easy to miss but on a beautiful day it is worth the effort to check out.

    The Awakening

    by crzymallard Updated Aug 14, 2005

    Sculpted by J. Seward Johnson in 1980 located at Hains Point in East Potomoc Park.

    If you like sculptures, than this 100 foot giant arising from the ground is worth seeing.

    This is a must-see in the wintertime. It is a very beautiful setting for ice skating. See the website for opening and times.

    This is the most unusual statue in DC. It is called the Awakening and is located in East Potomac Park which offers tennis, swimming, golf and more.

    Do go and see this statue.

    That's me on Einstein's lap. I believe this interesting monument is in the Foggy Bottoms area close to the State Department.

    Be sure to visit the lake in the Constitution Gardens. There are many migratory birds enjoying a dip here.
