Lotus and Water Lily Festival - Washington, D.C.

The annual Lotus and Water Lily Festival is a city favorite. Over the span of two weekends, starting July 14th and ending July 22nd, it beautifully combines nature and music. This Saturday, July 22nd, is their last event and definitely not one to miss!
