Never mind the fact that it happens every year—New Yorkers still get cherry-blossom fever during Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s swoonworthy festival. The two-day fair marks the end of Hanami (the Japanese seasonal tradition of blossom appreciation) and includes a cosplay fashion show, bands playing traditional tunes, dance performances and, of course, all those pink-and-white petals.
