Cherry Blossom Festival Washington DC Lots of Spring Activities March 20 - April 12


Cherry Blossoms in full bloom,
If you are lucky enough to be in the Washington, D.C. area over the next three weeks you are not going to want to miss all the family fun and festivities planned to celebrate this year's annual National Cherry Blossom Festival March 20-April 12. Due snow falling on the first day of Spring in the DC area, the Cherry Blossoms are a little late blooming this year. Though it's hard to tell for sure, the National Park Service is predicting that the Peak Bloom Dates this year will be from April 11-14. Peak Bloom, BTW, is defined as when 70% of the blossoms are open around the Tidal Basin. You can follow nature's progress here at the festival's Bloom Watch page.

You may even want to plan a trip there if it's not on your calendar yet. It may be snowing today in New York and other places, but I know I can't wait to see the cherry blossom trees in the Capitol when I return to the East Coast again in just a couple more weeks.

Washington Monument,
The 2015 National Cherry Blossom Festival marks the 103rd anniversary of Japan's gift of cherry blossoms symbolizing friendship with the USA. There will be lots to do for families with kids of all ages. Visit the official site for all the details and a full list of Festival Events. You can also stay in the loop by following the Festival's official Facebook and Twitter pages.
