March:

National Cherry Blossom Festival

This is easily the most popular DC event in the spring… The blooming of the cherry blossoms signals spring and with it gives us a little hope that warmer weather is on it’s way. More than 1 million visitors trek to DC to see the 3,000+ trees bloom. This also has a historical significance too… it shows the close bond that the United States and Japan has because the trees were a gift in 1912.
