Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending The Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival in Philadelphia. The cherry blossoms were breathtaking and the various events were quite entertaining. I will definitely be returning next year.
What is the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival?
A project of the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual celebration not only of spring and beautiful blossoms, but of Japanese culture as well. Each year, over the course of a few weeks, a wide variety of events are planned. From demonstrations of martial arts and ikebana flower arranging to library story hours to live musical and dance performances, the Subaru Cherry Blossom Festival presents traditional and contemporary Japanese culture to Philadelphia and its visitors.
