The Annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington D.C. is being held from March 27th to April 11th, 2010. I think I’m going to go on April 10th with a few friends to check out this pretty floral event around one of my new favorite cities. Here’s a little description of the event: The National Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual two-week event that celebrates springtime in Washington, DC as well as the 1912 gift of the cherry blossom trees and the enduring friendship between the people of the United States and Japan.
April 10th will have the National Parade where “Giant colorful 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.”
I think we’re also going to be hitting up the 50th Annual Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival where “Japanese food and beer, sake, music and dance, arts and crafts, anime and manga, taiko drums, samurai swordsmen, ikebana and bonsai, karate, judo, sumo, aikido, sudoku” will all be present. SAKKKEEE BOMMBBSS!!!!
This weekend is gonna be so dope yo!!! Hooray!
