This Month's Frequently Asked Question

Question: With the long dreary winter behind us, can you recommend an outdoor festival that best represents the arrival of Spring in New Jersey:

Answer: A great Spring event is the annual Cherry Blossom Festival in Branch Brook Park, Newark, NJ. This year it is held from April 9 -24th. Information can be found on their Website
This is the largest Cherry Blossom display in the United States with the National Cherry Blossom display in Washington, DC being the largest and usually occurs about two weeks earlier. This blossoms peak in the second and third weeks of April. There are over 3,000 cherry trees. The blossoms can be best enjoyed by a casual walk or picnic in the park. This is a week long festival with many events including a 10K race, trolley bus tours, and family Day with Japanese cultural activities, including demonstrations on origami, bonsai, ikebana, and martial arts.
