July 25 will be a busy day at Randall Field and Pool, located at South Capitol and I streets. During the afternoon, DPR will celebrate National Park and Recreation Month with the first annual “Recreation Day” at the field. From 11 am to 4pm, there will be a variety of free activities for the whole family, including music, swimming, soccer, basketball, softball, moon bounce, dodge ball, horseshoes, sack races, tug of war, gardening tips and demonstrations, among other events. One of those other events is “Talent Search.” From the press release:
Throughout the day, join us for “Talent Search,” where residents can go onstage in DPR’s Show Mobile and sing, dance, or perform whatever talent they have for fun and DPR prizes.
Later in the evening, DPR will be hosting a second event, “A Splish Splash Summer” Late Night Pool Party Series at Randall Pool from 8:30pm to 11:30pm. Randall is one of the three public pools that will host the event this summer. The event series is open to all ages and is free (for both District and non-District residents) although photo ID is required for adults to enter. A DJ and music will be provided, but no outside food or drink is allowed.
