Cherry Blossom Festival at The Lodge

The flower that blooms in adversity

is the most rare & beautiful of all.

The Cherry Blossom Festival celebrates the gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC in 1912. The purpose of the festival is to honor the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan and the continued close relationship between the two countries.

Our Cherry Blossom Festival Social was a blooming success! Residents began the evening by munching on Japanese trail mix & delectable home made meringues, then washed it all down with chilled cherry lemonade punch. The tables were dressed elegantly in white with fresh flower centerpieces. The main attraction was the display of a real cherry blossom tree along with a cherry blossom tea set, the residents couldn’t stop ranting about it’s beauty! They all really enjoyed themselves during the celebration. Until next year… Sayōnara!
