Nothing gets us in the mood for Spring like an outdoor flower festival. Each year tourist and locals look forward to The Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival. It’s the premiere activity to kick off the season and get in touch with beauty and nature. Pop over to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to celebrate Japanese culture and take endless photos amongst the stunning blooming cherry blossom trees. Expect a day spent enjoying a Japanese tea room, an art gallery, a mini market featuring wall scrolls, silk wraps and delicious Raaka chocolates. The day is filled with entertainment including Taiko drummers, samurai sword masters, cosplay actors, stand-up comedians, dance parties, J-rock bands, and more! It’s good family fun and perfect to share with your special someone. The event happens on Saturday, April 29, 2017 and Sunday, April 20, 2017 from 10am to 6pm each day.
