The Cherry Blossom Parade is an exciting traditonal moment for Washingtonians.
The Parade is made possible by the extensive volunteer efforts of the Downtown Jaycees, in cooperation with the National Park Service, and The District of Columbia’s Mayor’s Office.
All this is embodied from a gift of 3000 cherry trees from the people of Japan to the citizens of United States.
The tradition endures to blossom a renewal of kinship with a monumental display of simple pink flowers enshrined on the Thomas Jefferson Tidal Basin.
All proceeds from the Cherry Blossom Parade are used to fund programs for thousands of impoverished children living in the Washington community.
