We Celebrated the Cherry Blossoms!

Several thousand people came out on Sunday, April 24 

Blowing bubbles among the cherry trees!

The Wooster Square Cherry Blossom Committee is delighted have hosted the 2022 Cherry Blossom celebration! This year’s event – after a two-year COVID hiatus – had a concert (four local bands) and food trucks, allowing Wooster Square residents and Cherry Blossom enthusiasts to enjoy a delightful afternoon in the park.
