Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung in Philadelphia and the city is covered in cotton candy colored Cherry Blossoms.

If you think that Washington DC is the only place to experience the beautiful Japanese tradition, think again.

Starting today and over the course of a week, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates both traditional and contemporary Japan with a variety of events, including demonstrations of martial arts, ikebana flower arranging, as well as live musical and dance performances.

The main event, Sakura Sunday is held at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park and features two stages of performers, arts & crafts, Little Akiba, tours of Shofuso, and much much more. For more details and events, check out the official website and calendar.

Hope this inspires you to take a D.C. break and visit Philadelphia!
