Imagine 150 cherry trees bursting into bloom with soft pink flowers – that’s just what you’ll see at the Cherry Blossom Festival, taking place this weekend at the Japanese Friendship Garden of San Diego. Along with the gorgeous pink trees, there will also be special cultural performances, family activities, and vendors selling traditional Japanese street food and drinks. Indulge in the Japanese custom of picnicking under the trees, known as “hanami” – and shop for unique gifts and souvenirs at the cultural market. Visit the beer and sake garden for refreshments, and make fun crafts with your kids.
Hours for the Cherry Blossom Festival are from 10 am to 4 pm, on Saturday, March 5 and Sunday, March 6.
