Several hundred joyous Spanish fans celebrated Spain’s first FIFA World Cup Sunday evening in Dupont Circle. After the 1-0 victor over the Netherlands, soccer fans gathered in the Circle to dance, sing, splash in the fountain and wave Spanish flags. The celebration last close to three hours with fans dispersing‚ÄĒunder the eyes of the National Park Service police‚ÄĒaround 8 pm.

In addition to the jubilant Spanish fans in the park, there were several carloads of flag-waving fans driving around Dupont Circle. A handful of quiet Dutch fans in orange were in the Circle as well.

This was the second‚ÄĒalbeit unplanned‚ÄĒsoccer celebration in Dupont Circle this summer. On Saturday, June 12, Soccer in the Circle drew thousands of¬†futbol fans for the three World Cup matches shown on two large screens in Dupont Circle.¬†Soccer in the Circle day is part of the¬†Dupont Festival series, which brings events to¬†Dupont Circle.
