Cherry Blossom Festival March 20-April 13, 2014


It's that time of year again! Cherry Blossoms!

The Festival this year is from March 20- April 13, 2014.

The predicted peak bloom is April 8-12, 2014

I love the Cherry Blossom Festival, I've been volunteering for the past 2 years.

There are so many fun activities, great for kids and adults alike. 

One of my favorite events is Family Day. Free crafts and performances geared towards kids. I love doing crafts and my nieces and nephews are a great excuse for me to go. Haha it's fun running around with them, getting free stuff and making cute crafts. 

Family Day this year is on Saturday and Sunday March 22 & 23 in the National Building Museum. 

Other fun events I like are:
The Opening Ceremony is free, but to attend you have to request free ticket.s Unfortunately all the tickets are gone. You can try to go the day of and get walk-in tickets. 

The Blossom Kite Festival is loads of fun.  Everyone gathered on the mall flying kites.  There are even some kite workshop activities.

The Waterfront Fireworks Festival is free and their fireworks are pretty amazing.  They have a bunch of crafts for kids all day long.

The Parade is cool to watch and the Street Festival is at the same time.  I think you have to pay for the Street Festival, but its worth it for the food, etc.
