Heavenly Shades of Pink: It’s Cherry Blossom Time

Heavenly Shades of Pink: It’s Washington’s National Cherry Blossom Festival

Each year, Washington, D.C., embraces the arrival of spring with the two-week National Cherry Blossom Festival, a tradition that showcases the beautiful 3,000 cherry trees that the city of Tokyo gave to our nation’s capital back in 1912. The blossoming cherry trees symbolize the arrival of spring and brighten the entire area surrounding the Jefferson Memorial on the Tidal Basin with their vibrant pale pink and white flowers. The National Cherry Blossom Festival, which began on Saturday and lasts for two weeks, has become Washington’s premiere tourist event, drawing more than a million visitors annually.
