Five Georgetown businesses will turn metered parking spots in front of their establishments into temporary, green public spaces on Friday, September 20th to highlight car-free options, sustainability and creativity in the District as part of the city's participation in PARK(ing) Day.
PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks.
Georgetown participants include Baked & Wired, Malmaison, CycleLife USA, Fleurir Hand Grown Chocolates and Robert Bell Antiques.
This event is sponsored by the Georgetown Business Improvement District.
We were surprised to learn that Cannon's Fish Market closed August 11th "for medical reasons." The sign posted on this iconic Georgetown purveyor of seafood for over 70 years, states, "we appreciate your support over the past years and apologize for your inconvenience."
Cannon's history dates back to the early 1900's when Joseph Cannon started by delivering milk by horse-drawn wagon in the city. In 1937, he opened his first seafood business. Since 1968, it's been at 1065 31st Street in Georgetown.
