Cherry Blossom Parade Runs Along National Mall

WASHINGTON — The National Cherry Blossom Festival concludes this weekend, but not before the annual cherry blossom parade.

The parade runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. The parade route runs along Constitution Avenue from 7th to 17th streets. The annual tradition includes giant balloons, floats and marching bands from across the country.

This year’s parade is scheduled to include performers including Grammy Award-winning artist Mya, Elliott Yamin from “American Idol” and Disney’s Coco Jones.

Joshua Morgan, the Washington Redskins 2012 Walter Payton Man of the Year, serves as grand marshal.
