HANAMI Cherry Blossom Festival

This is the largest Japanese festival of the year. The trees are gorgeous. It is tradition to have a picnic of much food and drink under the trees. Prospect Park is as close as you're going to get to the real deal in the North East. A lot of people cosplay, there is Taiko Drumming • Manga Artists • J-Pop Bands • Tea Ceremonies • Samurai Sword Fighting • Cosplay Fashion Show • Bonsai Demonstrations • Minbu Folk Dance • Kids’ Workshops • Puzzle Plaza and More!

Here is the website. Trust me! It's worth it. ^_^ http://www.bbg.org/visit/event/sakura_matsuri_2013

    Sorry I went on Sat .You cannot get near the place by car without hours of waiting in traffic and trying to park. Maybe park close and walk or take public transit there
