If the shorter days and cold weather have got you singing the blues, you should visit the Ritchie Coliseum Saturday for the free Fifth Annual College Park Blues Festival.
The festival runs from 6 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. with free parking. The Nighthawks,
DC Blues Society 25th Anniversary Founders - Eleanor Ellis, Rick Franklin, Mark Wenner , DC Blues Society Band featuring Ayaba Bey and DCBS Battle of the Bands Winner will all be performing.
You can also help children get into the blues by bringing a new or used instrument to donate to Hungry for Music, a local charity that supports music education.
