National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade, Washington DC
One of Washington DC’s largest spectator events, the energy-filled National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade presented by Events DC runs for 10 blocks along iconic Constitution Avenue. Giant colourful helium balloons, elaborate floats, marching bands from across the country, celebrity entertainers, and performers burst down the Parade route in a grand spectacle of music and showmanship seen only once a year during the Festival. From the National Archives to the Washington Monument, spectators are wowed by the pageantry and excitement that is the nation’s premier springtime parade. This year the event is on April 13.
