On Sunday, April 17, 2016 I went up to Philly to attend the annual Sakura Sunday event which is a Japanese culture festival at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center. This is basically a smaller version of the National Cherry Blossom Festival Sakura Matsuri from the previous day in Washington, DC. Despite the weather being fairly warmer this year compared to last year the trees were only starting to green and there weren't any cherry blossoms in bloom, maybe next year the surrounding vegetation will be livelier!
Here are some pictures that I took of the area:
And here are pictures of some of the events and performances that took place throughout the day:
