Park Service to predict DC cherry blossom bloom
WASHINGTON — The National Park Service is hinting at when spring will arrive in Washington.
Organizers of the National Cherry Blossom Festival will be announcing the predicted peak bloom dates Thursday for when the pink and white flowers will be in full color.
The 2010 festival is scheduled to run from March 27 to April 11.
This year marks the 98th anniversary of Japan’s gift of the cherry blossom trees to the nation’s capital.
