The National Aquarium in Washington is holding extended hours during the National Cherry Blossom Festival.
There’s no work taking place on the Metro system this weekend.
The peak bloom dates for the cherry blossoms have been pushed back due to cold weather, officials said.
Officials in Washington are going to be predicting this year’s peak bloom dates for the city’s famed cherry trees.
The Cherry Blossom Festival is less than a month away but if you’re wondering when the trees will reach peak bloom you’ll have to ask a different guy this year.
While the peak was previously predicted to be somewhere between March 24th -31st, WNEW Reporter George Mesthos says the peak bloom for the Cherry Blossoms is now expected on Tuesday, March 20th.
America’s weather is stuck on extreme. Area residents are experiencing an early spring, but other parts of the country are getting a ton of snow and tornadoes.
Washington is getting ready to celebrate 100 years with its famous cherry blossom trees, and peak bloom season is just around the corner. The Cherry Blossom Festival will be an expanded 5-week ceremony in 2012.
