District residents mourning the loss of music legend Prince had a chance to say goodbye tonight.
Dozens of people gathered at the intersection of 14th and U streets NW around 9 p.m. this evening to dance to Prince songs played from a DJ booth in the bed of a truck.
The dance party, contained mostly to the sidewalk in front of the Reeves Center, went on for hours, according to several people in attendance.
The event aimed to give residents a place to “gather and dance together to remember the one and only,” according to its Facebook event page.
Soak up what’s left of summer with Camp CTRL and a good-old American dance party on Thursday, August 16 at Dahlak (1771 U Street NW).
DJs Jeff Prior, Reza, Pocket Gays and Borderstan’s very own Khelan Bhatia will be spinning the best in electropop, indie dance, remixes and mashups. Make memories in a summer camp-themed photo booth, sip on discounted drinks and enjoy free treats and surprises throughout the evening.
The night of summer fun starts at 9 pm and goes until 2 am. There is no cover charge; all are welcome. Visit the event’s Facebook page for more details.
