Once every year people line Wooster Street in New Haven for a special occasion, and with any luck a beautiful sight. In 1973 72 Yoshino Japanese Cherry Blossom trees were planted, lining Wooster Street. This time of year their blossom paints a beautiful picture of Wooster Street in New Haven, CT. This year marks the 40th annual Cherry Blossom Festival.
The festival will take place on Sunday, April 14, 2013 from noon to 5pm. The rain date set is April 21st. Attractions will include food, children's activities, an area designated for entertaining pets, and live entertainment. Stop by to enjoy the St. Luke's Stell Drum Band and dancers, swing band Tuxedo Junction, or singers Daniel Juarez, Jurate Svedaite, and Cybil Juarez. Admission to the festival is free. A pre-festival concert will be held on Friday, April 12th at 7:30pm. The concert will take place at St. Michael's Church on the park at Wooster Place.
