Cherry Blossom Festival Washington DC 2011

Posted by | April 13, 2011 | Events | One Comment

This is the 51st annual Cherry Blossom Festival known as Sakura Matsuri (in Japanese) at Washington, DC. In 2010 the festival was free, however this year the entrance fee was $5. How come? To aid the tsunami relief effort in Japan and to put up a fence around Pennsylvania Avenue. Events encompassing the festival spanned two weeks but the most fun-filled were the street activities on Saturday the 9th.
