The 101st National Cherry Blossom Festival

Washington DC ~ 2013

spring in MarylandIt's that time of year when Washington, DC explodes into a fluffy array of pink flowers - it's Cherry Blossom Time!  100 years ago the mayor of Tokyo gave the city the gift of 3000 cherry blossom trees and the blooms still decorate Washington for 2 weeks every spring.

This year the viewing and partying schedule ends on Saturday, April 13th with the annual parade from 10:00 am to Noon.  Check out more details at the National Cherry Blossom Festival 2013

The parade includes performances by Elliott Yamin of "American Idol" and the 2013 Miss America, Mallory Hagan.  Other events include a kite flying festival, tours and activities at local DC museums. 

The key location for a full effect is around the Tidal Basin.  The weekend weather looks great, spring is finally here and it's a great time to enjoy all that Washington, DC has to offer!  Since Washington is just a short drive or metro ride  from Howard  County, Catonsville and the Baltimore area, lots of people in our area have the chance to enjoy this celebration each year.

Hi Ellie, San Diego is the recipient of a gift from Japan of 300 of these trees and although I haven't seen them as yet, I will. I love the display of these trees and hope one day to be there in DC during their amazing blooming display.

We were there on Saturday. Hardly a bloom insight. Today we went back and it was absolutely gorgeous. I think you will love the pictures!  The wind started blowing and it was like a blizzard of petals....pretty amazing.   Too bad the bloom is so delicate and short-lived!  There is lots to do in DC for the festival this weekend!

Warmest regards,

Maryland Mortgage Mama
