You can see cherry blossoms in full bloom all over the Los Angeles area right now, but if you don't get your fill taking a stroll around Lake Balboa, you may want to head down to Little Tokyo today or tomorrow, because all weekend long they are celebrating via the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Soak up the vibrant colors of the delightful blooms while stepping into the Japanese culture. Enjoy live entertainment like Ondo Dancing, martial arts demos, music and singing, fashion, awards, and much more (full main stage schedule here). There's stuff for kids to take part in, the Japanese Cultural Pavilion, crafts and goods for sale, and food.
