aaaaaaaIf not – go now! Peek blooms are expected

The Cherry blossoms have been blooming around the tidal basin for over 100 years. The plantings of cherry trees originated in 1912 as a gift of friendship to the people of the United States from the people of Japan. In 1934, the District of Columbia Commissioners sponsored a three-day celebration which has been expanded over the years to the two-week festival we have today.
