Sakura Matsuri: Not Many Blossoms, but Good People Watching

Up in Tree

Let's just say that because of timing and nature, there's better people watching this year at the BBG's Cherry Blossom Festival than there is blossom watching. (Some blossoms that were out have already fallen, and a lot of trees are about to bloom, but those blossoms look like they'll be at peak mid- to late in the week.) We'll have a ton of pics and some vids coming up. Meantime, here are some teasers. Sakura Matsuri continues Sunday from 10AM-6PM, but be warned: Unless everything blossoms overnight, the blossom scene itself is a little disappointing compared to the last few years. (Everyone with a camera is jockeying to pose in front of the handful of trees that are in full bloom.) So, go and enjoy the riveting people scene and the entertainment instead.
