The Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco’s Japantown is the second largest festival of its kind outside of Washington D.C. It is also held in one of the last three remaining Japantowns in the United States! It brings me much pride in knowing that we have this wonderful festival here in the Bay Area. It is held over 2 weekends, this weekend April 14 & 15 and April 21 & 22. There will also be a wonderful parade!
