Summer Kicks Off With a Sizzle at RFK Stadium Campus


WASHINGTON, DC (May 29, 2015) – Events DC is figuratively and literally kicking things off to start the summer at RFK Stadium this weekend with a 5K fun run, the Capital Fair at RFK, and two high profile soccer matches. 
“There is no better way to start the summer than getting outside with others to enjoy exciting events and good weather,” says Erik A. Moses, senior vice president and managing director of Events DC. “We wanted to provide event options for everyone to enjoy outdoors this weekend and I think we accomplished it by giving the kids, teens and adults something memorable to experience.” 
Starting on Saturday morning, May 30th, the fitness junkie in your family can get their fix by participating in the Color Me Rad 5K from 9:00 a.m. to Noon (ColorMeRad.com). Immediately following, the Capital Fair at RFK turns on the carnival rides and fires up the grills for people of all ages to take in the fun-filled atmosphere. Just as the sun sets on Saturday, the activity shifts into RFK Memorial Stadium as DC United faces the Philadelphia Union (DCUnited.com) at 7:00 p.m.
On Sunday, May 31st, the Capital Fair at RFK opens their gates for the last day of fair fun from noon – 9:00 p.m. At 4:00 p.m. RFK Memorial Stadium adds another to the long list of international soccer matches hosted in the stadium by welcoming the men’s national teams from El Salvador and Honduras.
