Wooster Square is Living History  - It's also the scene of lively living
Families relax, the kids play, school groups have recess and games (see photo), and friends of all ages play ball. People read, do yoga or tai chi, walk their dogs, have picnics - and enjoy pizza!  
Wooster Square is truly a living park.

The 46th Annual 

CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL 

was a hit, despite chilly & damp weather.

 Sun., April 28, 2019  

The blossoms had bloomed and left 

a carpet of pink petals!


People arrived and started enjoying the food and visiting the artists, authors, and the tremendous range of local non-profits. (see top photo)

The children's activties were, as usual, hugely popular. 

Some bands were unable to play because of the weather, but 

Carlos y Su Momento Musical, a local group with Latin & Caribbean rhythms and salsa dancing played on.  (photo, above).
