Escape the heat this summer and get “lost” in a tiki bar themed event at The Yards. The Yards will make a splash and transform into an island paradise with DC’s largest Tiki themed block party on the boardwalk. Featuring a live steel drum band, lawn chairs and oversized lawn games, tiki bars with fun instagrammable drinks, a misting station to cool down, an inflatable surfing simulator, an “underwater” photo booth, and other water related activities, this event will make your Saturday feel like a vacation. Along with these interactive activations, a luau performance will take place and set the tone for a fun island vibe. The Yards merchants will participate by selling drinks and bites at the boardwalk kiosks.
