This year, we can finally see cherry blossoms comfortably. A cherry blossom festival is also scheduled to be held in Washington, DC.  Let's find out when the cherry blossom festival will be held in Washington, D.C. this year and when is the peak cherry blossom season.



When is peak cherry bloom?

The official peak cherry bloom prediction is March 22 - March 25. 
The cherry blossoms usually have six stages of bloom, ending at peak bloom, when 70% of the trees surrounding the Tidal Basin have bloomed. Stage two was reached on March 7. We think the peak bloom might be even earlier, maybe March 19 to 22. The NPS uses a combination of temperature analyses, historical records and psychic trees to make their estimate every year. Well, they’re not technically psychic, but they act that way.
So what's a psychic tree? It's one that, at the Tidal Basin, every year without fail, blooms 7-10 days ahead of the rest of the Yoshino trees.
