(Updated at 2:55 p.m.) Trumpet players, cheerleaders and other people are set to march from Shaw to Logan Circle as part of an evangelical Christian church’s annual parade this weekend.

The United House of Prayer for All People‘s parade is slated to bring congregants from its church at 601 M St. NW to the Logan Circle traffic circle Saturday morning.

M Street NW from 6th to 7th streets NW is expected close from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

Other road closures from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. are expected to include:

  • 6th Street NW from L to S streets NW.
  • S Street NW from 5th to 14th streets NW.
  • 13th Street NW from S to O streets NW.
  • Logan Circle NW.
  • P Street NW from 14th to 6th streets NW.
  • 7th Street NW from Q to L streets NW.

A United House of Prayer representative didn’t have an immediate comment on the parade or provide details on exactly when it will begin and end.

But Borderstan reported in 2013 that the marchers arrived about noon at the traffic circle’s park, where several locals gathered to watch. “Sweet Daddy” Grace, the church’s founder, lived at 11 Logan Circle NW before he died in 1960.
