This Saturday, April 5, join us for the Cherry Blossom Fireworks Festival. There will be free music, family friendly water-related activities, cultural experiences, live entertainment, and delicious food at multiple outdoor venues.
The Festival begins at 1, but we will start our day at the Smithsonian Station (Independence Ave, South Entrance) at 3:45pm and start walking to the Cherry Blossoms at 4pm sharp! We will walk around the Tidal Basin, past the MLK, FDR, and Jefferson Memorials and then to the Southwest Waterfront. This is a three mile walk and will take more than an hour at a leisurely pace with plenty of time for photos. Please wear your walking shoes and bring water! There is a shorter route for those that prefer or you can just meet us at the festival. http://bit.ly/11dG9y6
We will arrive at the Southwest Waterfront around 5:30 pm to enjoy the festivities! A few of the scheduled events are a food truck rally, a beer garden, and plenty of music and art. Let's all find someplace to sit by 8, because the fireworks begin at 8:30! After that, some members may head to Annandale or somewhere else for food or karaoke.
RAIN POLICY: The event takes place rain or shine. If it rains we will take a shorter route and/or change the order of events.
