National Cherry Blossom Festival Kicks Off This Weekend

cherry-blossomsThis years Cherry Blossom Festival runs from March 28-April 12, 2009. While the blossoms won’t be at peak until April 1-4, it should still be a beautiful time to head toward the tidal basin. The festival honors the initial gift of 600 trees to the United States from Japan in 1912 with events that include a parade and festival queen. To stay abreast of the peak bloom time, and the entire schedule of events, visit the official website here>>

    my daughter was cherry blossom princess from colorado in 78 or 79. I would like to bring my daughter and 2 granddaughters to see the festival and be included in any festivities that the past princess’s are included. Her name at the time was Kay Weakley. Would love to have any information regarding this.
