Washington, DC.   The National Cherry Blossom Parade down Constitution Avenue on April 13, 2019 climaxed three weeks of festivities that involved over a million visitors and residents.  The parade, amidst cherry blossoms  backdropped by Washington and Jefferson monuments, featured celebrity entertainers, marching bands,  elaborate floats, and giant colored balloons,

The Festival commemorates the1912 gift of three thousand cherry trees presented by Yukio Ozaki, Mayor of Tokyo, to Washington, DC.  The festival celebrates the enduring friendship between the people of the USA and Japan.

As JAVA has done in previous years, it has participated in two events during this annual Spring Washington, DC extravaganza.
