First Thursday, a Del Ray street festival planned — as the name might suggest — for the first Thursday of April (today) is being delayed due to inbound inclement weather.
There’s a 90% chance of rain today, so First Thursday will now take place on the month’s second Thursday.
The festival, themed this month around cherry blossoms, is scheduled to include live music, children’s activities and more.
“The Del Ray Business Association presents First Thursday: A Cherry Blossom Celebration on Thursday, April 13 from 6 p.m. to dusk along Mount Vernon Avenue,” the Del Ray Business Association said in a release. “Join the Del Ray community for live music by Mars Rodeo, themed activities, plus a fun scavenger hunt featuring cherry blossom-inspired art by local artists.”
While sponsors for a festival like this aren’t typically noteworthy, April’s First Thursday sponsor is Ting, an internet company that made waves for being one of the companies to break Comcast/Xfinity’s stranglehold on Alexandria’s internet.
