On the List | Capitol Hill Clean Sweep, Soccer Jam, Parke Diem in Volunteer Park

The annual Capitol Hill Clean Sweep community service event hits the streets and common areas of the neighborhood on Sunday to get it sparkling clean.

Join up by meeting in Cal Anderson Park at 10am to register, eat breakfast, and pick up a t-shirt and cleaning supplies. Entertainment and lunch will also be provided. (Secret private message to new Hill residents: Clean Sweep is a great event in which to meet your new neighbors.) The Clean Sweep is also part of the start of an entire month of Pride on Capitol Hill.

As in previous years, expect fun, frolic, and a little mayhem as kids zealously join in the activities such as walnut smashing, hay pile treasure hunting, and squirt gun race contests for prizes. New this year: Circus Acts! See our photos from the 2013 Carnival here
