Washington DC: Cherry Blossom Festival On Schedule…Mebbe PDF Print E-mail

Hotels, restaurants and other tourist-related businesses in the nation’s capital city have good reasons to be worried this season. The estimated cherry blossoms peak bloom dates and a million tourists are predicted to happen during the last week of March this year.

So far, the coronavirus panic hasn’t hit the city, and the festival producers say, ”If the situation remains the same, we feel that people are still going to come.” This year’s events are planned from March 20 to April 12.

They include the Blossom Kite Festival, the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade, foods, kids’ programs, music and more. Grammy award-winning rapper Nelly is scheduled to perform at Cherry Blast, and World Series baseball champs Washington Nationals will play the Miami Marlins at Blossoms and Baseball on April 6 at Nationals Park.
