The National Cherry Blossom Festival (March 20 – April 12) is a citywide festival that celebrates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry blossom trees to Washington, DC by the mayor of Tokyo. The festival features a range of spectacular events, from its eponymous kite extravaganza on the National Mall to fun cultural experiences like sake tastings. Local restaurants even get into the spirit with the Cherry Picks program, while DC-area hotels offer blossom-themed packages, deals and discounts. And it all leads up to the main events: Petalpalooza, formerly known as the Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival, and the storied National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade. As you plan your trip, note that the National Park Service predicts that peak bloom will take place from March 21-24.
