Weekend Watch: Cherry Blossom festival goes out with a bang

Filed Under: Washington, DC

TONIGHT: The farewell event of the Cherry Blossom Festival.

If you're willing to keep the kids up a bit late, the Cherry Blossom Fireworks are set for 8:30 to 9 p.m. near the Southwest waterfront. Best viewing from East Potomac Park or the Southwest Waterfront promenade. You can take metro to the Waterfront/SEU stop, but there's also said to be parking available on-site this time. (I suspect there will also be plenty of nice remote views for families from just across the Potomac near the airport and at some of those higher elevations in Arlington overlooking the Potomac.)

A fireworks Prelude Party with family-friendly activities, food, and music by military and local groups, takes place from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at Waterfront Park (600 Water St. SW). Again, we're told parking will be available on-site.
