Cops are scheduled to set up the block party near the Shaw Metro stop at 1700 8th St. NW from 2-5 p.m. Wednesday.
The festivities are part of a series of events meant to help boys and girls avoid illegal activities.
Past “Beat the Street” events have had a rock climbing wall, a moon bounce and school supplies and uniform giveaways, alongside haircuts and safety information. It wasn’t immediately clear whether all of the features of those parties will return.
But hip-hop artist “OverTyme Simms” is slated to play at the event, according to a Facebook event post.
