Hanami: Cherry Blossom Viewing at Dallas Arboretum
Ann Pinson Recommends
The Dallas Arboretum is always beautiful during Dallas Blooms, its floral festival that runs through April 12. But the brief window when the cherry blossoms are in bloom is extra-special. Take along a picnic and check them out during this Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth event.
Update: Hamami has been moved to March 29, 1-3 p.m.
Join your friends from JASDFW (Japan-America Society of Dallas-Fort Worth) and DJA (Dallas Japanese Association) for an afternoon of socializing under the sakura. Hanami is the Japanese custom of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers, particularly cherry blossoms. Each spring, Japanese people gather for large picnics beneath the sakura.
This year, let’s celebrate hanami Japanese-style. Bring your own picnic and blanket, and meet us under the sakura in the Pecan Grove at Dallas Arboretum. You can practice a little calligraphy, make new friends, or just enjoy the delicate beauty of the sakura. The event is free, but Dallas Arboretum entry fees apply (Adults $15 / Children $10 / Parking $15).
