In the spring, over 2,000 trees bloom at the Cherry Blossom Festival.

The kite festival runs in parallel with the cherry blossom festival. These events take place in March.

“The Jefferson Memorial, the Capitol Building, the cherry blossoms, the swimming pool, and even the diving bird in the foreground all captured the sunrise.”

“Lightning flashes near the Jefferson monument and memorial. You can also see cherry trees in full bloom.”

A combination of historical monument and blooming nature.

Cherry blossoms are the participants of the festival in the foreground.
