Sakura Matsuri: Cherry Blossom Festival
Time Out says
Cherry blossoms are at their picturesque peak during this two-day celebration at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, but there's a whole lot more to see than just pink and white petals. Visit a Japanese tea room, peruse an art gallery and shop a mini flea market hawking loot such as mouthwatering Raaka chocolates, wall scrolls and silk wraps. There's also a packed lineup of entertainment including taiko drummers, cosplay actors, samurai sword masters, J-rock bands, stand-up comics and dance parties.
