Cherry Blossom Festival History
The spring celebration in Washington, D.C., commemorates the March 27, 1912, gift of Japanese cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo City to the city of Washington, D.C. Mayor. Ozaki donated the trees to enhance the growing friendship between the United States and Japan and also celebrate the continued close relationship between the two nations. The festival has grown to incorporate large and colorful helium balloons, floats, marching bands from across the country, and other live entertainers.
