WANT TO WIN A $2,000 DOWN PAYMENT

 

THEN "CITY LIVING, DC STYLE!" IS THE SHOW FOR YOU

 

 

 

CITY LIVING, DC STYLE! EXPO, OCTOBER 24 - 26, 2003

 

 

 

(Washington, D.C.) - 30,000 units of housing. More than 400 restaurants. More than 50 miles of hiking and running trails. 14 institutions to learn all your life. This is city living, dc style! www.citylivingdc.com

 

 

 

Coming up next weekend, October 24 - 26, is the first annual city living, dc style! EXPO, a free show at the Washington Convention Center that puts all the reasons to live and enjoy the District in one room.

 

- We'll have housing providers - from affordable to market-rate - on-hand.

 

- We'll have banks and mortgage brokers to help people with financing.

 

- We'll have free classes on the city's homeownership incentives, all our neighborhoods and our great amenities that are off the National Mall.

 

- We'll also have a live radio broadcast, free music and cultural performances, five giveaways for $2,000 towards a down payment - and it's all free.

 

 

 

This won't be your standard pipe-and-drape EXPO - the floor will look like the District and the carpets will run like our Metro lines, to give people a sense of our city.

 

 

 

If you're looking to move or learn more about what to do in our city, this is the show for you: the city living, dc style! EXPO, October 24 - 26 at the Washington Convention Center. Register today at www.citylivingdc.com or register on-site. Remember, it's free. Don't forget to pick up your copy of the Express, the Washington Post's free daily on Friday, October 23. Inside, you'll find our EXPO program and guide to living in the city, with a list of our current exhibitors and ideas for new ways to spend your free time in DC.
