Spring is finally here and it’s definitely in the air in Seattle. There are plenty of places to see cherry blossoms around the city but as Seattleites know, the U District and UW are some of the best places to visit. For that reason the U District Cherry Blossom Festival was created and here’s what to expect from the second annual event.

Seattleites can enjoy the festival until April 2nd at various locations in the area. All in all, 70 U District businesses have come together to present special menus featuring a variety of cherry and blossom-themed food, drink, and even retail specials.
