It’s Never Too Early To Start Planning For One Of The Most Magical Festivals In America
Each year, a million and a half folks from all over the world flock to the Nation’s Capital for a reason that has nothing to do with politics. Rather, it’s a natural phenomenon they’re after. The annual Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the gorgeous and delicate bloom of the cherry tree. Symbolically, these beautiful blooms represent the dawning of springtime as well as a longstanding friendship with the country of Japan, where the beautiful tree originates. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s not-to-be-missed event.
