White Plains Celebrates Spring with Annual Cherry Blossom Festival Sunday, May 7th at Turnure Park

The cherry tree and its blossoms, known as sakura, hold great significance for the Japanese people and are an important part of their rich history. In Japanese culture the cherry blossom represents the end of the winter season and the beginning of new life in spring. They are a symbol of the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Viewing the cherry blossoms is an annual social and cultural event in Japan in which almost all citizens take part. White Plains is honored to be part of this tradition.

The afternoon will include Japanese music, dance, song, storytelling, games and crafts.  Japanese food and beverages will be available for sale.  The event takes place among groves of Japanese cherry trees located at Turnure Park on Lake Street from Noon until 5:00 p.m.
 
 It is free and open to the public. 


For additional information, please call the Recreation and Parks Department office at (914) 422-1339.
