Join us as we host Petalpalooza, a National Cherry Blossom Festival official event featuring a full day of art, music, and family-friendly fun along the waterfront!

Enjoy live music on District Pier and the Pearl Street stage, stop by the Mars Pet station for a treat (or some relief) for your four legged friends and catch the WANADA Blossom Car being painted live.  Grab a refreshing beverage at our District Pier beer and wine garden and cap it all off with a candy-colored fireworks finale at 8:30pm!
