It’s that time of year when tourists flock to DC in hopes of catching Cherry Blossom “peak bloom” at the Tidal Basin. If they planned their trips for this weekend, they got to experience the Cherry Blossom Festival in all of its fleeting glory! This is my 5th spring in DC and my first time actually catching peak bloom, and it was beautiful! Next year I vow to go at dawn to catch the sunrise and escape the crowds.
Here’s some of my photos from Cherry Blossom Festival, 2016:
The Festival has events lasting through April 17, 2016, so there’s still time to visit and experience it for yourself!
