Soon winter's snow and freezing rain will give way to warmer days in Washington D.C. The National Cherry Blossom Festival is an annual event in the nation's capital celebrating the blooming of the thousands of cherry trees along the Tidal Basin and elsewhere in the area. The 2011 Festival will commemorate the 99th anniversary of 3,000 Yoshino cherry trees presented by the Mayor of Tokyo to the City of Washington as a "memorial of national friendship between the United States and Japan."
The Fairmont Washington, D.C. is celebrating with its signature Cherry Blossom Package. Available from March 25 through April 15, 2011, the Cherry Blossom Package offers overnight accommodations for two in a luxurious guestroom, complimentary valet parking and a box of assorted note cards featuring scenes of the capital's monuments and cherry blossoms by celebrated Washington, D.C. photographer Jake McGuire.
