2011 Cherry Blossom Festival (date pending)

4 April is the projected blossom peak, and the crowd will be larger on Saturday...

http://www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org/about/bloom-watch/

Get there early...this festival is usually packed.

We'll meet at the FDR memorial, this is closest to the National Park parking lots, and is generally less of a hassle than other sites around the Tidal Basin.

See everyone in the Spring,

--Matt

    I apologize for not making it to this first meetup. I was going to the blossoms with friends from out of town and when we realized it might be raining we cancelled the trip downtown. And it turned out to be a great day after all! I hope to see you all at the next one.

    "Spotty" showers tomorrow, I'll still be there as planned. I'm arriving at 8am for parking, should be there until 10-11am at least. Note I'll be at the south entrance to FDR (the one closer to the Jefferson Memorial).
