Cherry Blossom Festival USA 

Ninety-five years ago, the people of Japan gifted the city of Washington, DC with over 3,000 flowering cherry trees that were then planted around the Tidal Basin.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival was created to honor the spectacular arrival of springtime to the U.S. capital and this years festival is scheduled for March 31 to April 15, 2007.

The festival parade will be held on April 14 and the colorful Smithsonian Kite Festival at the Washington Monument grounds, is on March 31. Each year there is also an art poster competition, so get to work on next year's poster.
