District of Columbia Cherry Blossom Festival

Today, I have a guest blog posting. It's from the National Museum of Crime and Punishment. Perhaps that appears to be a strange place to hear about the Cherry Blossom Festival...but, here it is!

Springtime is perfect for picnics, wearing shorts, and admiring the Cherry Blossoms in DC. The National Cherry Blossom Festival is an two-week (per annum) event that celebrates springtime in Washington, DC as well as the 1912 gift of the cherry blossom trees and the enduring friendship between the people of the United States and Japan.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization that coordinates, produces, supports creative and diverse activities promoting traditional and contemporary arts and culture, natural beauty, the environment, community spirit and youth education. It also begins the peak season for an influx of tourists to Washington, brought in by the thousands of historical landmarks, museums, and other buildings. The National Museum of Crime & Punishment, located in Washington, D.C. is one of those such buildings, with excellent depictions of historically famous crime scenes along with detailed information concerning past wars, forensics, organized crime, and more.
