Virginia Beach celebrates the Cherry Blossom Festival and Earth Day
March 17, 2013 by Mark
There are two events taking place in Virginia Beach in April that will help to celebrate our various cultures and the planet we inhabit.
The Cherry Blossom Festival in Virginia beach will be taking place in early April. It is a celebration of sister cities Virginia Beach and Miyazaki, Japan. Much like the annual celebration in Washington, D.C., the festival takes place during the cherry blossom growing season in the area.
There will be plenty of family-friendly activities in which to take part during the festival, including Japanese entertainment performances, arts and crafts activities, martial arts displays, an origami display, and drumming performances by the Soka Taiko Group.
Also in April, Earth Day celebrations in Virginia Beach will feature exhibits, displays, and informational displays. There will be demonstrations on how to become more environmentally friendly in day-to-day life. A special feature of the event will be the AAA Recycling Zone where people can bring in batteries and recycle children’s car seats.
No doubt the organizers of each event will be working with Virginia Beach printing companies to prepare, and there will probably be a need for banners, flyers for advertising, signs for display, and posters to let the community know they are taking place.
The Cherry Blossom Festival will take place at Red Wing Park on April 6 from 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm, with a rain date of April 7. The Earth Day celebration will take place at Mount Trashmore Park on April 20 from 11:00am – 4:00 pm. The rain date for this is April 21.
