Playfield in the Park is a complete fun fest for youth of all ages. The event serves 600 young heroes and their families for a day of fun, entertainment and distraction. Each year, participants are treated to an afternoon loaded with sports activities with professional athletes, picnic lunches, visits with superheroes and other hands-on experiences. Most importantly, the event allows kids, many of whom have had to grow up too fast, the opportunity to just be kids during a challenging holiday weekend.

We are so excited to host you and your wonderful families tomorrow. We wanted to let you know that parking is very limited, so we will be providing free shuttle rides to the event that will run throughout the day. In order to access the shuttle, please park at Pentagon City Mall by 11:00 a.m. The shuttle will be located at the the Ritz Carlton Pentagon City. The first shuttle will leave at 11:30 a.m. and then runs every 40 minutes with the last shuttle returning from the event at 3:00 p.m. Alternatively, you can pay to park at a hotel near The National Mall or you can take the metro. Thank you so much and we can't wait to celebrate with you tomorrow!
Very Respectfully, Yellow Ribbons United
