Our country had a brutal winter season, especially the East Coast with the snow. Well, Spring is here, when our annual Cherry Blossoms Festival is here. (Technically it started on March 26th, but it's not a festival without the full bloom of the cherry blossoms, right?) Washington DC, our nation's capital will be flowered with pink and beauty. I'm hoping the later winter didn't spoil the bloom prediction of April 4th. Since it's April 6th already and the festival is still (or had been) going on, I think it's a safe bet we'll be catching some beautiful cherry blossoms this weekend. It's a once in a lifetime thing to check out, and this is the last weekend for the festival, but you might still catch some prettiness afterwards when the tourist crowds gone.
Besides the actual 'Cherry Blossoms' walk, don't forget the Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival that happens simultaneously with the cherry blossoms festival every year. It will be held this Saturday, April 11, 2015, between 10:30 AM and 6:00 PM. Click on their link above for more info.
Have fun and enjoy!
