Cherry Blossom Festival
Children had the opportunity to be a KYW News Anchor at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Fairmount Park on April 13th, 2014.
There was a significant no-show at Tuesday’s event: the cherry blossoms.
Chris is broadcasting live all week from the Heritage Foundation in Washington DC. He talks to Jim Gilmore, the President of the Free Congress Foundation, the President of the NRA, David Keene about their efforts to fight restrictive gun ownership laws, and Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel about their tough home opening weekend against Kansas City.
It’s a four week long series of events, including anything from film screenings and food tastings, there’s a sushi contest, there’s demonstrations and live performances.
Greater Philadelphia Gardens has put together a Cherry Blossom Guide to help you find them in the peak of bloom, before they blow away like pale pink confetti.
Cherry blossoms are the centerpiece of the upcoming Cherry Blossom Festival of Greater Philadelphia, but the mild weather is causing some varieties of the buds to bloom a little early.
