The National Cherry Blossom Festival’s Kite Fly is soaring off The National Mall and heading to your own backyard. Learn how to create your own kite at home (perfect activity for the kids or just kids-at-heart) and let them take flight on March 27th and 28th. 


Hunt for cherry blossoms throughout the District

The National Cherry Blossom Festival has some amazing programming set for this year to be enjoyed safely. They’re turning the traditional parade into a city wide event with their Porch Parade where residents will decorate their homes and businesses with a cherry blossom theme. And keep an eye out for their Art in Bloom statues blooming around the DC area! 26 local artists designed each piece perfectly for your photo ops!
