Almost Cherry Blossom Time (and free)

It’s free, it’s pretty, it’s the Cherry Blossom Festival. This year’s festival starts this Saturday (26 March) and runs through 10 April. And by happy coincidence, the peak blooms will occur during the festival (anticipated 4 April – 9 April). Among the events are a parade and a street festival.

If you can get away during the week, it’s even better because on the weekend, it’s quite packed. And if you have any artistic proclivities, it’s a great time to break out the paints or pastels and set up an easel by the Tidal Basin.
