Denver is a great place for entertainment because the events are very diverse. They include everything from comic festivals to restaurant week. With spring and the accompanying warmer weather Denver’s events have taken a turn for the outdoors. One of the first to take place this spring is the Cherry Blossom Festival.
The Cherry Blossom Festival is an event celebrating Japanese American Culture, and is named for the Japanese Cherry Blossom which is famous for its beautiful, yet short-lived blooms. A few of the events you can catch at this year’s festival include martial arts, Taiko drumming, dancing and singing. It will also feature some great eats. This year you can enjoy teriyaki, sake and a large beer garden featuring an assortment of drinks.
The experience wouldn’t be complete without souvenirs. Vendors will be on hand selling handmade jewelry, vintage kimonos, origami umbrellas and home decor items that will you can incorporate Japanese culture into your home.
