Cherry Blossom Festival…Spell Bounding

Cherry Blossom festival is a huge event in Washington DC celebrated with gusto every year. Festival of flowers, kites, food along with music and pristine fun. It’s a must visit if you visit DC at this time of the year. Truly amazing and spell bounding…

On 7 April, there will be fireworks and look forward to the spectacle.

I had taken some videos and pictures of the festival and the museums I had visited. I had planned to share them here but I misplaced all the photos and videos. I think my mistake I deleted the folder where I had saved the videos and pictures. My apologies. I plan to visit again and share videos and pictures here.
