Orange County Cherry Blossom Festival
by Nataly Roa
Orange County’s Cherry Blossom Festival returns for a spring celebration of Japanese and Japanese-American culture in Southern California. Each year the festival brings together a broad spectrum of performers and activities that span the traditional to the contemporary.
This year’s festival is expanding to three days, with the newly added Sakura Night Market on Friday and Saturday night. Bring the whole family for a fun-filled weekend of music, dancing, cultural exhibits, martial arts, crafts, games and some of the best Japanese food and drink vendors in the region.
