Today is just the beginning of the 17th Annual Cherry Blossom Festival, presented by Subaru. During the two week venture, you can expect to have your eyes bombarded with beauty. Celebrate even more on April 13th, Sakura Sunday, which will be held at the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park.
The Japan American Society of Greater Philadelphia has designed a series of festivities to engage and promote an experience for all ages in Japanese culture, art, film & food. And while the bountiful and breathtaking Shofuso, Japanese House & Garden will be immersed in traditional tea ceremonies, including the breaking of the sake, it will also be adorned with women in curated kimonos, breathtaking visuals and cherry blossoms.
The Cherry Blossom Festival is not only meant to entertain and celebrate, but it is a representation of mutual camaraderie, enlightenment and communication between people coming together for one another.
