Make Room For Peak Bloom!

The cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin have officially reached peak bloom! The National Park Service defines the peak bloom date as the day on which 70% of the blossoms of Yoshino cherry trees that surround the Tidal Basin are open. The date has always varied year to year, depending on weather conditions. In 2017, peak bloom began the last week of March, while 2018 started the first week of April.  From the blossoms at The Tidal Basin to more than 40 events that make up the Festival, the whole city will come to life this spring from March 20th through April 14th!
