Photos from the National Cherry Blossom Festival

It's only 9 more days until the National Cherry Blossom Festival. It looks like most of the festival won't experience peak views, however that doesn't stop the fun. For 2015, the National Park Service anticipates the cherry blossom peak will occur on or about April 11 to April 14. When it does happen, it's usually pretty spectacular. 

I usually try and head downtown every year to see the blossoms. Here are a few shots from 2013 and 2014.
