At this year's Cherry Blossom Festival, in addition to over forty beautiful cherry trees, there will also be live entertainment and surprises for all ages. There will be a children's area that will feature a blow up obstacle course, as well as treats and crafts. For the adults there will be a beer and tea garden featuring brews and blends from all around San Diego. There will also be live performances all weekend and excellent cuisine choices to give everyone a taste of Japan. Guests may want to grab a bite and partake in Hanami, the traditional custom of picnicking under the cherry trees.
