National Cherry Blossom Festival takes place in Washington, D.C. every year with a parade, a marathon and a Japanese lantern-lighting ceremony which is held every year is a major tourist attraction festival. This 2 week long festival commemorates the gift of cherry trees from Japanese Mayor. You can watch many dance performances on the opening day. Many spectacular events took place on that day.

The Middle Atlantic States consists of Delaware,Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsyvania, Virginia, and Washington D.C. The best time to visit is in the cool early spring Washington’s pink cherry blossoms are at their peak for a few spectacular days. Summer is swampy in Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia with temperatures in the 80s, yet thousands flock to all three for monuments or baseball. The dazzling autum foliage in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and West Virginia’s Potomac Highlands draws hordes. In winter when temperatures average in the 40s, Maryland, Pennsyvania, Virgina offer down hill and cross-country skiing.
