Cherry Blossoms Are The Stars of Springtime in Washington DC!
Each year, Washington, D.C. hosts the National Cherry Blossom Festival, which commemorates the anniversary of a 1912 gift from the mayor of Japan, who sent thousands of Japanese cherry trees to the American capital. In March, these trees begin to bloom, creating a vibrant display of bright pink and white flowers along the banks of the Potomac River and throughout the city. This year, the festival will take place from March 17 to April 15 while peak blossom time is expected to be April 8 through April 12.
What better way to celebrate the end of a long winter and welcome spring than to head to Washington, DC for the National Cherry Blossom Festival?
