April 5th, 2017 | Events in New York
Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival is the optimal outdoor activity to welcome Spring. Each year tourist and locals rejoice as the weather warms and these charming pink-petal trees flourish. Head over to the picturesque Brooklyn Botanical Gardens to engage in over 60 events over a span of two days. Enjoy Taiko drummers, cosplay actors, J-rock bands, samurai sword master, stand-up comics, dance parties, and more. There will also be food and drinks for sale alongside a Japanese tea room, a mini market of Japanese goods such as wall scrolls and silk wraps. Keep your eyes peeled for Raaka chocolates that are delicious and exotic. We can't think of a better way to spend your weekend than surrounded by blooming flowers. It's the perfect activity for the family or to spend with your loved one.
