What: the National Cherry Blossom Festival
Where: Washington, DC
When: now!

A rite of Spring is the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC. This year however it celebrates its Centennial—the 100th anniversary of the gift of the cherry trees from Japan—so record breaking attendance is expected, especially with the early arrival of warm weather.

In conjunction with the festival, many other cultural activities are planned—check the events calendar but don’t miss the Blossom Kite Festival on March 31st or the 100 years of Kimono exhibit at the Mandarin Oriental.

There’s also the 5x5 project, a curated city-wide contemporary public art exhibit featuring 25 temporary art installations which will be on display throughout the celebration—a few for up to four months.

Thanks to jake, store manager georgetown, dc for this submission.
