Nature is an important and artistic part of life and sometimes you just have to admire and enjoy the beauty in it. Brooklyn Botanic Garden embraces nature’s beauty one a daily basis through their significant plant-life. One of the most beautiful times of year at Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the celebration of beauty in nature through the viewing of cherry blossoms.
Cherry-blossom viewing is in fact a Japanese traditional custom known as hanami. This custom is centuries old and consists of a festival-like atmosphere celebrating the beauty of flowers. Brooklyn Botanic Garden keeps this tradition through the viewing of cherry-blossoms for a month, ending with Sakura Matsuri, which is a festival of Japanese culture and performance.
You can view the cherry blossoms starting from April 7th going until April 28th in Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Sakura Matsuri takes place from April 27th- 28th, 2013. More information about the different events taking place during Sakura Matsuri can be found at http://www.bbg.org/visit/event/sakura_matsuri_2013.
