A brief history of the Tidal Basin including the story of the cherry blossoms to go alongside my stock images

 

 

  • 3,000 cherry blossoms were given to Washington DC as a gift from the Mayor Jukio Ozaki of Toyko in 1912.

 

  • The Japanese cherry trees were give as a gift to help enhance the friendship between the United States & Japan and celebrate the continued close relationship between the two countries.

 

  • The National Cherry Blossom Festival has commemmorated this generous gift from Japan since 1927.

 

  • From modest beginnings the festival has blossomed into a truly national event welcoming around 1.5 million visitors each year over the four weekend span of the festival.

 

  • The official peak bloom date of the cherry blossoms is determined when 70% of the Yoshino cherry blossoms are open.

 

  • Typically peak bloom occurs somewhere between the last week in March and first week in April with a few exceptions due to extreme weather conditions.

 

  • Earliest peak bloom ever recorded was on March 15th 1990 and the latest April 18th 1958.

 

  • The Yoshino variety of cherry trees typically bloom for several days, but the length of the blooming period depends on weather conditions.
