Things I need to Know
 
TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION .  Go to the Federal Triangle Metro Station (Blue, Orange, or Silver Lines) exit on 12th St. NW. Walk 1/2 block north toward Pennsylvania Ave. NW.  Take a left on Pennsylvania Ave. NW and walk 3 blocks west to the Ellipse.    *PARKING NEAR THE ELLIPSE IS NOT AN OPTION*
 
BRING AN UMBRELLA – RAIN OR SHINE.  The event will not be cancelled due to rain.  In addition, there are no trees or areas for shade on the Ellipse.  Therefore, you’ll also need an umbrella to shade you from intense sun.
