Washington DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival
April 3-6 2020
Washingtonians herald the departure of winter when the world-famous cherry blossoms cast their characteristic pink petals over the Tidal Basin. Giant colourful balloons, marching bands, and performers will burst down Constitution Avenue in an energy-filled spectacle of music and showmanship seen only once a year during the National Cherry Blossom Festival. The festival marks the celebration of the gift of cherry trees from Tokyo
