Today’s Washington D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival parade did go on as planned, thanks to the terse last-minute budget agreements made last night. Other sources said it would have gone on anyway. Here is a list of family activities for the festival – which is officially over tomorrow, but the trees don’t know that! They are so gorgeous in full bloom! The family activities can happen any time, too! Next year will be the centennial celebration of the festival in Washington DC. Plans are already in the making for the extra special 2012 event.
There are cherry blossom festivals all over the world, of course, and here is a selection of photos of beautiful photos.
