Check out our photos from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Sakura Matsuri Festival


Last weekend, families celebrated all things Japanese at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's annual Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival. Although a warm early spring caused BBG's trees to sprout a few weeks before the traditional cherry-blossom bloom, the festival was still bursting with spring fun, including everything from samurai-sword demos to ethnic foods, dance and music performances, tea ceremonies and more. Scroll through our pictures of the day to see more of the event!
