Highlights near Washington

The Sounds of Fall in Washington, D.C.

As long as there have been streets, there have been street performers. In ancient Egypt and Greece, people entertained and passed the hat for donations. During the Middle Ages in Europe, troubadours were the personal street performers of the aristocrats, while minstrels and jongleurs brought joy to the general public. The tradition continued at the Jefferson Memorial on one of the last mild fall days in DC yesterday.
