‘Show your spirit’ at this upcoming First Thursday event in Del Ray

Who’s your hero? On Thursday (September 1) Visit Del Ray will host the annual “Show Your Spirit” celebration at Pat Miller Square on Mount Vernon Avenue.

The first Thursday event runs from 6 p.m. to dusk, and includes themed activities and the band Stop Thief! Revelers are asked to wear clothing that their heroes wear, or that inspire them — from pro athlete jerseys to school colors.

“Heroes can be who ever is a hero to you — be it a police officer, be it a teacher — be it a sports person,” organizer Pat Miller told ALXnow. “Most people tend to come with sports heroes however.

The party will be held at Pat Miller Neighborhood Square at 2311 Mount Vernon Avenue. Donations at the event will support Safe Space NOVA.
