Cherry Blossom Day on the Capitol Mall celebrates the gift of cherry blossoms and the arrival of spring.
The 10-hour event features diverse and creative programming including Japanese dance and drumming performances, walking tours, a photo contest, food carts, and much more. The highlight of the event will be a traditional Japanese “Ohanami” celebration in which participants will eat and drink under the cherry trees while enjoying the transient beauty of the cherry blossoms. Paper lanterns will be hung from the trees so that participants can continue the festivities into the evening. All events are free and open to the public.
The festival is a partnership with Capitol Historic Gateway, City of Salem, Oregon State Parks, Salem Creative Network and others.

This event will be presented in conjunction with the upcoming Cherry City Music Festival  on April, 3, 4, and 5, 2015.
