I hope you have been doing your hopping exercises, because Hopscotch CD is Saturday.

Almost two miles long, Hopscotch CD (a project led by Jackson Commons) will connect the neighborhood from Jackson to Union with community events, stands, garage sales and more along the way. There will also be a series of group walks through out the day (see the footprints on the map below for more details).

Although the map has been completed (again, see below), it’s not too late to get your things together to hold a garage sale, lemonade stand or just about anything you want along the route. It’s pretty DIY, so just set things up and get ready to meet a whole lot of CD neighbors.

If you want to be a part of hopscotch history (I know that’s been your lifelong dream), then be sure to get to the Centerstone parking lot (18th/Columbia) at 1 p.m. Saturday as you and many of your neighbors will attempt to break the world record for the number of people playing hopscotch at the same time.

Organizers tell CDNews that they are still looking for volunteer help, especially people who can help chalk the course Friday around noon and people who would like to help clean up after the event wraps up Saturday evening at 6 p.m.

Here’s the full map:

  1. Perfect event to showcase our neighborhood…Looking forward to it.

    Can this story be run on the Capitol Hill Blog?

  2. I want to make sure that everyone who lives/works along the path knows that the Hopscotch path is a mix of cornstarch, flour, a bit of food coloring, and water.

    It should wash off after a couple good rains.

    We are also very happy to come wash it off sooner (looks like a dry couple days after Hopscotch CD), so please feel free to drop me a note at [email protected] with any questions/issues as the course goes down.

    • Knox, don’t wash it off. Let it wear out and get used by the kids for as long as it lasts.

  3. I am looking forward to my trip but am sad to miss this. Thank you to all who are working on this. Joanna
