Kentucky environmental lawyer Sanders says Washington’s Cherry Blossom Festival is a great American event that must be seen in person!

For anyone who has traveled to Washington D.C. in the spring, there is nothing so utterly spectacular and beautiful as the blooming of the cherry trees around the Tidal Basin.  The famous trees, a gift from Japan in 1912, signal Washington’s rite of spring with an explosion of life and color that surrounds the Tidal Basin in a sea of pale pink and white blossoms.  

The natural beauty of the flowering cherry trees  is something to truly cherish and behold.  I urge everyone to see this wonderous event in person.


Exactly when the buds will open is not an easy question to answer. It is pretty much impossible to give an accurate forecast much more than 10 days before the peak bloom. National Park Service Horticulturists monitor 5 distinct stages of bud development and provide forecasts and updates as needed.  The National Cherry Blossom Festival kicks off March 28.
