Cherry Blossoms in DC: Spring Break in Washington

Cherry Blossom time in the Nation’s Capitol

The National Cherry Blossom Festival (March 20- April 14, 2013) takes place in Washington, DC  every Spring and is packed with festivals, parades and many other events. Washington turns pink as the many cherry blossom trees in the city start to bloom. This year’s festival  commemorates the gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC  in 1912.

Peak bloom this year is expected between March 26 and April 1, but it is hard to predict. The National Park Service website offers a blossom cam, as well as updated predictions on blooming dates.

From parades to fireworks to paddle boat rides on the Tidal Basin, the family friendly festival has something for everyone!
