"Welcome to DC", Mambo Sauce

Apr 13, 2009

I'm not sure if you all know about the Cherry Blossom festival that goes down in DC every year around this time...but it's aesthetically pleasing and definitely something to partake in if you're a nature person. They have parades and everything to commemorate the blooming of the cherry trees. Here's a little more info about it:

The plantings of cherry trees originated in 1912 as gift of friendship to the United States from the people of Japan. In Japan, the flowering cherry tree or "Sakura", as it is called by the Japanese people, is one of the most exalted flowering plants. The beauty of the cherry blossom is a potent symbol equated with evanescence of human life and epitomizes the transformations Japanese Culture has undergone through the ages. The date when the Yoshino cherry blossoms reach peak bloom varies from year to year, depending on weather conditions.

For over 95 years, people from all over the world have gathered in Washington, DC to welcome the arrival of spring and to share the special season with each other. The splendid cherry trees, the focal point of the Cherry Blossom Festival, are constant reminders of the strong and enduring friendship between the United States and Japan.

Yup. Go ahead and put that on your bucket list.
