Wednesday is expected to be the peak blooming for the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC.

The blooms arrive at different times each year, but Wednesday is expected to be the height of blooming this year.  The National Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the annual blooming of the trees that were a gift from Japan in 1912 as a gesture of friendship toward the U.S. since that time.  The number of trees has multiplied to more than 3,700 on National Park Service land.
