The National Cherry Blossom Festival is many things to many people. They have a parade, fireworks, and oh yeah – cherry blossoms. But the event I’m really looking forward to is the second annual Cherry Blast. Produced by The Pink Line Project, this creative extravaganza features performance art, dance, film, a haiku sake bar, free bruises, and a make out room (where you may also get free bruises if you know what you’re doing).
Last year’s event was a sight to be seen, and I imagine that this year will be even bigger and better. With too many activities and artists to list here, click on over to the website to get a preview of the insanity. If I haven’t sold you on Cherry Blast already, take it from a commenter on Facebook who said, “This shit looks dope.”
Indeed it does.
